Scandinavian Reflections Exhibition

I've just been to the most extraordinary jewellery exhibition at Gaffa - my jaw literally dropped when I saw one piece (this has only happened to me on one other occasion when I saw my first Barbara Rihl bag but I digress) - it was made from hand crocheted silver wire (which I never thought I would like until now - I must get back to Brisbane soon so that I can get my Mum to show me how to crochet - again I digress) by Anne Pfeffer Gjengedal who is a jeweller from Norway. The piece consisted of a long strand like a vine, which ended with a gorgeous flower - it was presented in the gallery as a piece of installation art hanging from the ceiling and looked stunning! I've checked out Anne's website and found a photo of it to drool over - the photo can be viewed here - but it was much more sparkly in real-life!

Wow, that is amazing! The Danes have an amazing sense of design don't they?

They certainly do! All of the jewellery in the exhibit was magnificent - beautifully hand-crafted and designed!
