We're always very happy to see Jewellery and Object Design graduates going on to amazing things. There are a few upcoming exhibtions, hope to see you at the openings...
2007 graduate Nikki Majajas has assembled a compact collection of crafty coconut handbags
inspired by her love of kitsch, bedazzling and home made ‘doo-dads’. Inspired by a 60’s Hawaiian souvenir she stumbled across in a thrift store, Nikki has taken the humble coconut and turned it into pop art pastiche.
Opening night is Tuesday 1st November from 6pm to 8pm, Petty Cash Café and Gallery 68 Victoria Road, Marrickville.
Curated by 2010 graduates Felix Gill and Danae Natsis, this group show brings together both emerging and established jewellery and object designers, inspired by science fiction cinema. "For us it provides the opportunity to bring into existence today objects that are prompted by imagining the possibilities of tomorrow: making ideas into reality — not just costume props, but pieces that can endure longer than the life of a movie set and accompany humans into daily life here and now."
Opening Thursday November 3rd, Gaffa Gallery, 281 Clarence St, Sydney CBD.
The intrepid Jasmine Matus, who graduated in 2008, has returned from an epic adventure and brought an amazing body of work with her. Jasmine has been driving through the lost back roads of rural New South Wales, meandering the Great Ocean costal road of rugged Victoria, travelling across South Australia’s lonely Nullarbor out to Eyre Peninsula. Fragments of an Expanse, a solo exhibition of jewellery and objects, references the experiences, places and people met whilst journeying across rural and outback Australia in a camper-van come mobile jewellery studio.
Celebration drinks Saturday, November 12th, 4pm - 6pm, Studio 2017, 6b/ 2 Danks St Waterloo.

The auction is an exclusive opportunity for viewing and purchasing unique handmade pieces from talented national and international contemporary artists. We are fundraising for the annual end-of-year student exhibition, this year titled Benchmark.
Presentations are complete and last terms' project is in. This term is flying by.
Stage 2 jewellery and object design students have been busy learning how to cut, file and shape carving wax into rings and small scaled objects.
This requires a lot of patience and concentration because wax is a completely different material to metal. The wax will then be cast into metal using different casting techniques. For our next project this term, we will also be learning how to use the lathe.
Scaling down an object for carving
Drop by the college to see our last project on display outside the workshop, D Building, level 1. The Wabi/Sabi/Suki rings, made by Stage One students, are also currently on display.
