girls against gold

girls against gold

October 10, 2009


Ten female graduates of the Jewellery and Object Design, Advanced Diploma course
from the Design Centre Enmore have united for a second year running to exhibit on a
theme, this year being girls against gold.

In 2009 the artists are questioning the preciousness of traditional materials commonly
used in jewellery. Stimulated by both a contemporary viewpoint on material value as
well as a reaction to inflated gold prices they will be exploring materials and ideas not
conventionally applied to jewellery.

The ten female artists have created an exhibition of quirky, unique and handmade
contemporary jewellery and objects aimed to inspire, provoke thoughts, capture
the imagination, while exploring the question ‘what makes something precious’.

The participants are:
Majella Beck Jenny Daskalakis
Lisa Furno Nikki Majajas
Natasha Marcus-Taylor Jasmine Matus
A Mi Kim Radka Passianova
Bernadette Trainor Janis Valdivia
An added bonus for gallery visitors will be ‘ten girls in ten days’. Each day that the
show is running will see one the ten participants staffing the space and available to
answer any questions about the works.

5% of all sales will be donated to Breast Cancer Australia.
