Craft Victoria and Design A Space Retail Gallery are proud to present Vicki Leigh of Next Romance Jewels.
Vicki Leigh's idea of 'romance' is to sit and create beautiful, small runs of handmade earrings. Her philosophy is to add some texture, colour and individuality into your everyday outfit by changing up your earrings. Her label 'Next Romance Jewels' has been creating beautiful little illustrated art tiles from a secret polymer/resin technique for about 5 years, selling pieces through high-end markets in Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney and Brisbane.
You will see the history of Vicki’s tile designs in this latest ‘dreamcatcher’ sculptural piece. These represent the details, little intricacies of each day, the dreamcatcher is the bigger picture, the dream and wonder of where these details may be leading you, the mirrors are a reflection of the community that support and encourage your dreams. This is where you find your place as an artist.
'I am a contemporary jeweller and graphic designer who loves craft and exploring new mediums. I am excited to be able to exhibit as part of Craft Cubed Window Walk. This format makes art so accessible. I think that's why, as an artist, I make jewellery. Wearable, unique, handmade art to be enjoyed.'
