Jewellery and metal: A treasury of light and land

This month we look at how jewellers and metal smiths are exploring innovative ways to be sustainable as part of creative mico-enterprises.  Craft Australia is exploring sustainability across the various mediums and materials that define craft and deign practice. This includes fashion, furniture, jewellery and object design. Leaders in the field have been interviewed about what sustainability means in their area of practice. Four months into the year and we have a very compelling story about sustainable craft and design enterprises.
