Eighteen contemporary jewellers from Australia and New Zealand present work they have made using unexpected materials they received in a mysterious brown box.

Zara Collins (AU) – Chop Suey stretch – bracelets

« Zara was a finalist in the prestigious Talente Award & Exhibition 2004 in Munich, Germany. Her ‘ChopSuey Stretch Bracelets’ are a fresh and cheeky appropriation of the humble chopstick. This continues Zara’s work with patterned chopstick earrings and ‘spike’ earrings.«

Mikiko Minewaki (JP) – necklace ‘One de chain’ Miso-soup bowl – 100 cm – 2000

« my idea come from…….
Anything hides a good form. I am making my pieces by the work of cutting off plastic goods.
Any object by being pieced can become wearable.
Things previously without connection to the body can become wearable to it by this simple operation.
I was born in the countryside of Japan.
Every day I picked flowers and leaves from the fields and made jewellery- necklaces, rings, crowns- from them.
This feeling is the source of my pieces.
One day I found the natural forms were hidden in plastic products.
So I started to pick the parts from my daily objects, and I keep searching for new forms in my everyday things.
It is happy to me if you could enjoy such a point of view when you saw my pieces.
Now,I have a pen with my hand but when we see it the next time, it may be a neck chains!  »
