Zoe Brand is a brilliant contemporary jewellery maker, wearer, curator and writer. Her work is marked by humour, irony and very clever but simple ideas. I first met Zoe at Gaffa Gallery and admired her passion and commitment to contemporary jewellery practice. I am pleased to present her ‘speech bubble’ brooches in the Places & Spaces exhibition. I do have one regret - I wish I purchased her fantastic piece “Sorry I wasn’t really listening” from the Box Project exhibition, which was another fine example of her cheeky humour.
