Auction poster

Some of New Zealand’s Handshake jewellers are travelling to London in October 2018 to install their work in London’s Crypt Gallery. The exhibition, a collaboration with Dialogue Collective, is a satellite show for the Royal Academy’s celebration of art of the Oceania region which will feature the work of NZ artists, including Lisa Reihana.

Please support our fundraising auction. Check out the catalogue and either come along to the auction or, if you are not able to be there use our live phone bid service (see How to buy).

The auction will be a gala affair, held at Te Auaha, the new home of the Whitieria jewellery school. With Kim Hill as auctioneer, a free raffle ticket with every drink, and world-class jewellery so kindly donated by our generous supporters, what’s not to love?
