Intro
This paper was presented in Sydney in January 2006 at the Biennial Conference of the Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group of Australia :  On Location: making stories: citing, siting, sighting.

The theme of the Biennial was about the place of jewellery and metalwork in our culture. It addresses different points along the journey of an object from the maker's imagination to its inception and its placement in the cultural community - through the eyes and words of the various people that make its life possible.
