An inspiring exhibition of modern charms designed to be of service to the wearer. Twenty one jewellers from Australia, New Zealand and Chile have created objects that have the potential to change our lives. Each jeweller has created a work, which relates specifically to their world and whose function is activated by the wearer. The exhibition at Objectspace includes documentation of how the jewellery has been used; there are videos, diaries, and drawings. The touring exhibition will travel from Australia to Objectspace and then across the Pacific to Latin America where more jewellers will also participate in the project.
