Ten female graduates/staff from the Design Centre Enmore have united for a second year running to exhibit on a theme, this year being girls against gold.

In 2009 the artists are questioning the preciousness of traditional materials commonly used in jewellery. Stimulated by both a contemporary viewpoint on material value as well as a reaction to inflated gold prices they will be exploring materials and ideas not conventionally applied to jewellery.

The ten female artists have created an exhibition of quirky, unique and handmade contemporary jewellery and objects aimed to inspire, provoke thoughts, capture the imagination, while exploring the question ‘what makes something precious’.

The participants 2009 are: Majella Beck, Jenny Daskalakis, Lisa Furno, A Mi Kim, Nikki Majajas,
Jasmine Matus, Radka Passianova, Natasha Marcus-Taylor, Bernadette Trainor, Janis Valdivia

An added bonus for gallery visitors will be ‘ten girls in ten days’. Each day that the show is running will see one the ten participants staffing the space and available to answer any questions about the works. All are welcome to attend this event, much of the work will be available to purchase and 5% of all sales will be donated to Breast Cancer Australia.
