New Zealand jewellery graduates and the heroes who inspire them come together to create sublime works. This project revives the tradition of the classical apprenticeship where skills are passed from mentor to student. Twelve international masters take up the challenge to mentor 12 of New Zealand’s recent graduates in contemporary jewellery. Read more about the project on the design magazine d*hub and on the projects blog and more about Studio 20/17 on their blog.
