This week on the podcast we feature a very special guest. Peter Deckers joined Courtney and Cat for a wander around The Bold and The Beautiful, an exhibtion that features some of the most extravagant and striking necklaces, pendants and breastplates from The Dowse's collection. Peter lectures in Jewellery and Contextual Studies at Whitireia NZ.

Far from being a simple commentary on the show, Peter gives us a small glimpse into the history of jewellery making and philosophy in New Zealand, as well as giving us his perspective on some of the works, and his perspective on the resurgence of the 80s...
