This is an installation from a jewellery workshop I held in the undeground carpark as part of a great project called AURA at Collingwood Housing Estate in Melbourne. I taught participants how to make a ring in silver and then we broke apart a piano and made jewellery from the parts.Here is the AURA blog: www.auraproject.blogspot.com.au

Exhibition in Polymer Kultuuritehas, Tallinn, Estonia in November 2009. With thanks to Tänel Saar. The installation fills and turns the gallery space upside down. A person stands inside the inverted plinths to view the jewellery.
