A Jewellery Narrative

For this blog post we’re sharing something different – Jewellery objects to make us think deeply about our human condition.

Elizabeth Shaw is well known in Australia and overseas for her jewellery and small objects often drawing on found objects that are strangely ‘fixed’. Her work has the power to touch us inexplicably and deeply. Elizabeth continues to be an advocate for sustainable, ethical and thoughtful practice in the arts and to mentor emerging jewellery artists. She also contributes to the international jewellery community in a range of ways that include contributing to debates about the future shape of the field. Elizabeth Shaw leads Jewellery and Small Objects at Griffith University Queensland College of Art in Brisbane.

Her exhibition Recycled Narratives was on in Brisbane at Woolloongabba Art Gallery during March 2018.

Helen Wyatt caught up with her to talk about this show. Read the interview here.
