SHOW OF THE WEEK - HELEN BRITTON and JUSTINE McKNIGHT

q-tee


Have you all been wondering where we've been? Apologies for our long breaks between posts at the moment. We've been working on a major project for 18 months now and we are so close to the deadline we can feel it. So it's a mixture of stress and excitement for team HML. That being said the world certainly doesn't revolve around us and the craft world continues to produce amazing shows, events and activities both here in Melbourne and around the globe.
We very nearly missed out on the  current show at Gallery Funaki and it's is a real corker. A collaboratin between jeweller Helen Britton and fashion designer Justine McKnight has produced a series of works  called 'jewellery for tshirts. 
Jewellers are often thinking about how their work relates to the body, but how does it relate to clothing? Fashion designers think of jewellery as accessories, not a necessary partnership. So it is interesting territory to explore and they created some amazing pieces together. The show ends tomorrow (yes we are SO sorry it's taken us this long to tell you about it) so if you can scoot in - fantastic. But if not go here for an interesting read on the show. RAMONA
