Intro
HANDSHAKE is an initiative from New Zealand where emerging jewellery designers were given the opportunity to collaborate with experienced makers in order to inspire the new generation of designers (to "lend a hand") with combined knowledge and experience.

The trajectory consists of a traditional exchange of knowledge between master and mentee, but in a collaboration that is collegial and equal. This structure gives young makers a chance to develop their work and ideas, different from the safe educational framework of a traditional course, by focusing on the use of feedback, support and practical experience from renowned jewellery makers.

For the fifth edition of HANDSHAKE, CODA has asked twelve New Zealand jewellery makers to enter into a dialogue with works from the CODA collection. The designers have taken pieces from this collection as a starting point to investigate three themes: Innovation, the Body and Rough and Raw. The associations that the makers have with these themes are personal but at the same time recognisable in the works. Themes such as gender, identity and immigration are discussed alongside topics such as love and homesickness. In the HANDSHAKE 5 exhibition, the jewellery made by New Zealand designers is exhibited alongside the selected works from the CODA collection.
