"A ring is not just a thing" . That's the title of Lucy Sarneel's course in jewellery design, taking place from 11 to 30 August. "A jewel is an outstanding medium for projecting our desires and the things we believe in, to support our spiritual well-being", Sarneel says. In this course, you will develop your individual working process and your own jewellery cosmos through research, sketching and writing. If you happen to be in Melbourne, you can see Sarneel's latest works in a solo show (together with Manon Van Kouswijk) at Gallery Funaki , still on view until 8 March 2014.
