What is Marina making?

You’re invited to Day One: a solo exhibition by jeweller Marina Antoniou.

Day One is a collection of handcrafted jewels inspired by the symbols, forms, materials and techniques used by master craftsman to create the earliest examples of jewelled adornment.

Rather than replicating specific artifacts, Day One transcends the ages and blurs the boundaries of traditional jewellery design. It not only presents a reflection of the past – the beginning – but more importantly presents a reflection of the early development of Marina’s skills as a designer and maker.

Artisan Magazine have collaborated with Marina to produce a video, giving one a glimpse into the creative process behind her beautiful pieces. The video will be revealed on the opening night.

Day One launches on November 7th 2013 between 6pm – 8pm at COTA gallery, 10b Fitzroy Place, Surry Hills, Sydney. The exhibition runs until November 30th 2013.
