Artist list

Zoe Brand, Nellie Peoples
Nellie Peoples and Zoe Brand are emerging art jewellers who have recently graduated from the Australian National University, School of Art Gold and Silversmithing Workshop. 
Both jewellers are concept driven and seek to create a dialogue with the wearer and the public.

Peoples is examining the connections made between objects and people. The work will focus on the aspect of an on-going narrative with the beholder/s. The idea that every dent and scratch is evidence of each action taken by the beholder. Together the culmination of these marks create a narrative. The beholder along with the object marked by the journey taken. This includes a small series of sterling silver rings encased in crayon, that wears down with the journey of time and at the same time marks connection with the journey. 

Brand is constructing a narrative around how we consume and understand signs. Using familiar language and forms often found in retail environments she questions the conventions of commerce and of the ubiquitous and ambiguous language that surrounds it. The work includes serial production of badges, pendants and rings as well as one off advertising boards. 

Peoples has a dialogue between the wearer and the object while Brand extends that dialogue to the wearer the object and the viewer. Both jewellers are concept driven and seek to create a dialogue with the wearer and the public.
