Field Mouse Pendant:

The Field Mouse Pendant is crafted from Sterling Silver and is completely solid. 
There are two types of chain available from which the field mouse pendant could be suspended from.
The round belcher chain is a very classic chain design. This particular belcher chain and is a thicker, sturdier belche, chosen to support the weight of the pendant.
The second chain option is a lovely Wheat Chain which has a 'knitted' or 'weaved' appearance with a beautiful snake like movement.

Wellington Fashion Week:
Future Face of Wellington Competition 

18 - 22 April 2012 

Stylist: Rebecca McKenzie-Watson
Photography: Tim Watson @ Studio 62  

 Rebecca McKenzie-Watson: "The theme for the Wellington Fashion Week shoot was "International Fashion Weeks, and Wellington".  I used all WFW designers' current in-store stock to recreate some of the looks we had just seen for Fall 2012 on the runways of Milan, New York, London and Paris. Then I pulled together a consistent look for Wellington but gave it a local twist.  I wanted to dispel any lingering notion that NZ follows international trends rather than contributes to them."

Within the Wellington film industry there are hundreds of artists working collectively to create some of finest films made in the world.
â€quot;˜Unscriptedâ€quot;™#39; aims to profile these brilliant minds to present their talent as individuals, in mediums ranging from painting, illustration, jewellery, textiles, furniture, costume, sculpture and 3D animation and many more with over 100 artists involved.

"I have been working full time for the last year in the Wellington film industry. This is the first group show I have seen featuring some of the creative individuals involved in the film industry. I'm looking forward to seeing their work collectively, showcasing what they create in their own practices and proud to be part of the talented collective." Steph Lusted.
Included in this exhibition will be three pieces of Steph lusted Jewellery including an articulated snake like necklace with movable elements, a large neckpiece made from bone like forms carved in silver and 'Precious Nature' a victorian inspired neckpiece where insects cast in resin become the jewels....
