Eighteen contemporary jewellers from Australia and New Zealand present work they have made using unexpected materials they received in a mysterious brown box. An unusual earplug neckpiece, shuttlecock earrings and brooches sprouting living grass adorn the gallery walls amongst many other delightful pieces.
Curator Jasmine Matus conceptually revisits her childhood busy box, a box full of collected items brought out on rainy afternoons to inspire the making of imaginative objects. Twenty years later, The Box Project involves professional jewellers using complex materials and techniques to bring to life this intriguing past.
