The exhibition showcases the evolution of contemporary jewellery practice during that past decade and presents a wide range of object making. Unbounded by the traditions of jewellery and its conventional association with precious materials, wearability and the relationship to the body, these artists forge new directions in their work.

The artists use a divere range of materials as they challenge traditional notions of body adornment.

Artists include: Lisa Walker, Karl Fritsch, Kirsten Haydon, Joanna Campbell, Jacqui Chan, Anna Wallis, Lynn Kelly, Jason Hall, Ann Visser Cox and Pauline Bern
