Penelope Barnhill

The heart and cross often crop up in my work. For me it's about reconciled grief and the phoenix moment where equilibrium holds for a moment and all emotions perch perfectly. 'Between the Eves' is about my 1905 home which holds my messy studio and view across the old porch where the garden laps at the house. With the new building zones its existence is threatened.

Macarena Bernal and Jessica Dew

The idea to collaborate for Peanuts came from a remark Laurie Steer made at an Objectspace talk in 2020 about the old cliché that says artists work for peanuts and it's wrong to be ambitious and want to make money. Tired of jobbing at the bench Jess and I walked away dreaming of glamorous peanuts dripping in gold and gems.

Set of Pairs

In this body of work 2 pairs of earrings are related to one another.
Arc I and Arc II became a set after creating the framework for Arc I. I decided not to go ahead with that particular design as a new concept, Arc II, presented itself. It's a set as the silver framework structures are like a ghost print echoing the resemblance of the Jade shapes used during the fabrication of both pairs.
The inspiration for Kauri Gum I and II are based on the Kauri mangroves. Different techniques where explored eg. carved shapes vs use of raw material, incorporating Tangiwai and mangrove shoots becoming prongs.
Cuttlefish I and II where created from one piece of cast silver. The cuttlefish was used back to back leaving different patterns on either side. The ingot was sliced in half.
For cuttlefish II, i used the inner parts which were cut out to allow space for the Jade settings in cuttlefish I.

Kvetoslava Flora Sekanova

These pieces are a reflection on the recent events in the world. They prove that not only brooches but also a simple form with primary purpose to be adornment well fitted for the body, for the lobe, can carry a deep emotions and story behind.
Faith, Hope, Freedom and Countdown combine direct symbolism with feelings and emotions. They can be as much my story as a story of anybody else. Visual langusilvere becomes a bridge between different understandings of each person.
