Studio 20/17 is pleased to present their annual winter exhibition ‘Very Simple Proofs, The Trivial Ring’. . In previous years, jewellers have explored the notion of the brooch, and toyed with the idea of a neckpiece. This year the exhibiting jewellers from Australia and New Zealand will investigate their understanding of and question the importance, significance or relevance of the ‘ring’. It will be sure to show a poignant and occasionally humours examination of such a traditional and historical piece of jewellery.

..................

My choice for the material I used is based on my understanding of preciousness and value. Common minerals such as beach pebbles and quartz are abundant in my immediate environment. They have value to me for their visual uniqueness and attraction not bound to monetary value. I elevate trivial materials into something unique, a proof that simple objects can have layers which are not immediately obvious. The trivial ring is not so ordinary after all. The placing of value seems to be a judgment made freely by the individual in his or her irreducible subjectivity.
