Let me tell you the ladies of HML are no janey-come-latelies when it comes to David Neale. We wrote about him way back in 2006 and again in 2007, singing his praises and just generally going a little bit weak at the knees when we saw his work. The brooch below is one in my collection and it's one of my most treasured possessions and is based on a garden weed!
So of course for us his new show opening this week at Pieces of Eight is our highligt show of the year. What do we like about his jewellery then? He's always had a lightness of touch while at the same time being solemn in his appraisal of the natural world and its inherent spiritual connection.
The show Love Letters opens tonight and runs through til the first day of spring at Pieces of Eight Gallery as part of the Craft Cubed Festival.28 Russell Street
