Every 2 years or so we take a long trip to the USA to visit family and freinds and of course jewelery. This year we were on the west coast and I got to visit the VELVET DAVINCI gallery in San Francisco. How exciting. I took my daughter and we stayed for over an hour. They were in between exhibitions, but the permanent collections and showcases were full of amazingly creative, inovative, well crafted jewelery and sculpture. Here are a few photos of work I especially liked, (I should have taken about another million photos) I didn't buy any work, but I did buy the catalogue from "The Pocket Guide to New Zealand Jewelery"
