This is the second money shell commission that Barbara has worked on for the curator and collector, head of Australian Art QAG/GOMA; Julie Ewington. This commission was to design and make fastenings that most suited these objects. Both from interesting sources with their histories intact, now they are secured for vitrine presentation and the odd ‘rumble in the disco jungle’ . . . the one above is fabricated in shakudo, the one below has a knotted necklace of matt onyx with oxidised silver fastenings © Bh – Jeweller to the Lost.
