The Melbourne Cufflinks 2018
Lord Coconut presents the 6th annual Melbourne Cufflink Exhibition & Acquisitive Student Prize for 2018.
Students from undergraduate and postgraduate courses in jewellery/object based design, gold and silversmithing, visual arts (jewellery) and the like submitted a pair of cufflinks which they created in 2018. As these cufflinks are often the first piece of male jewellery the students have designed the exhibition highlights to both maker and viewer what is possible when developing and making contemporary jewellery for men. This exhibition features the best of these submissions. The acquisitive prize is valued at $500 and was won by Jean-Nicolas Weryha.
