Once More, With Love

Picture

Many people are unaware of the darker side of jewellery production – the ethical issues, including the exploitation of workers, damage to the environment, resource depletion, as well as health issues for jewellers themselves. As makers of jewellery we acknowledge that our field interacts with complex notions of ‘want’ versus ‘need’. Hence we are aware of the importance of taking responsibility for how our individual practices may affect the needs and livelihoods of communities and environments globally.

Once More, With Love is a not-for-profit travelling jewellery exhibition raising concepts of sustainability, recycling and ethical production. The project involves over 30kg of unwanted jewellery items donated by the Australian public which have been reworked ‘with love’ for this exhibition by a diverse selection of twenty one contemporary jewellers all with a proven interest in ethical making and recycled materials.  The works created for Once More, With Love propose a potential new life cycle for materials, while creating space for reflecting on their origins. The project is an opportunity for people to experience what creative minds can do with recycled materials in an everyday studio context.

The Once More, With Love project was started in 2010 by Suse Scholem, a contemporary jeweller from Melbourne who is passionate about sustainability and the power of art and community engagement. Suse was inspired by the activities of the American group Ethical Metalsmiths, who have significantly increased ethical/sustainability awareness in the American jewellery industry.  The Once More, With Love project grew from the success of a Melbourne-based jewellery recycling project organised by Suse.  As interest in the project grew, a significant number of jewellers became involved, and internationally respected jewellery artist Simon Cottrell, took on the role of co-curator. Along the way, the project has attracted significant patrons such as Dr Kevin Murray, Vice President of the World Craft Council, Asia Region, and Katie Scott Director of Gallery Funaki, Melbourne.

After Sydney, the exhibition will be heading to Canberra in October 2012 and then to Melbourne in early 2013.

In addition to the touring exhibition, the Once More, With Love project will involve events in each host city incorporating community discussions; as well as an ongoing website www.oncemorewithlove.com with information about issues relevant to the ethical sustainable implications of jewellery resources. The entire project was conceived with the aim of bringing the entire breadth of the jewellery community together to enter a dialogue around sustainable/ethical practice.  The project will be culminating in a weekend seminar in Melbourne Autumn 2013 which is still in planning

EXPO ‘The Year was 2006′ – Studio2017, Waterloo NSW (AU) – 19-30 Juin 2012

‘THE YEAR WAS 2006

An exhibition of 100 jewellery pieces made in 2006

The Year Was 2006 Waterloo Australia exhibitions unique custom jewelry custom handmade jewellery exhibitions

2006. It was a common year that started on a Sunday. John Howard was PM and Pluto was no longer classified as a planet. It is often bandied about that art is a reflection of our society; intrigued, we set out to find what 2006 might have looked like in terms of contemporary jewellery. 100 jewellers from across the globe have been invited to present one piece of jewellery they made 6 years ago. Presented as a salon hang, this exhibition will showcase an incredibly diverse array of jewellery and will give an overall snapshot of what these jewellers were thinking, making and the materials they were using all those years ago in 2006.
