What is this all about?

In 2010, Seven Auckland Jewellery Geeks embarked on a mission to get their work out there and seen by Subliminally Infiltrating other people's openings with the work of that evening's Feature Geek.
In 2011, a few more geeks join in the fun and break a few of the original Subliminal Infiltration rules...

Subliminally Infiltrating with Unnatural Tendencies at Fingers - 03 October 2011

The Auckland Jewellery Geeks decided to Subliminally Infiltrate Fingers, the home of the New Zealand Bone Stone Shell movement, wearing the plastic fantastic work of our lovely Australian Jewellery Geek friends Melinda Young and Lauren Simeoni at their exhibition 'Unnatural Tendencies'.

Melinda and Lauren subliminally infiltrated the Fingers balcony with plastic poppies to replicate the fake plastic blooms over the road at the newly revamped Auckland Art Gallery.
 It was a very rainy afternoon. Lynsay arrived looking like a drowned rat with a very wet red puff ball brooch.
Melinda and Laurens show 'Unnatural Tendencies' was huge and took up the whole back wall and the drawers underneath.  Such an impressive collection, over eighty pieces on show!
Melinda Young looking on as Eloise tries on Renee Bevan's fantastic silver plated balloon necklace.
 Nadene and Lauren Simeoni reminiscing about the black rubbery piece that Nadene made at last year's Unnatural Naturally workshop which was the launching piece to a whole new body of work.  
There was a bit of a frenzy to try things on when the price lists finally arrived. 
 Sharon wearing Melinda ring, Lauren puff ball and Melinda pipi. Just cant get enough it seems...
 Joey wearing Zoe Brand and trying on the collaboration Melinda and Lauren brooch that we bought.
I was also quite tempted to buy this lovely yellow string which launched a conversation about everyone thinking I was a brooch wearer not a necklace wearer - so I will have to start wearing my necklace collection and put up pictures of them on my other blog.
Cath could not decide which necklace to buy. Wearing three at once wasnt helping her decision much.
She ended up buying this one which was my favorite. New Fingers shopgirl Georgina was wearing a very large red puff ball.
Kristin and Jacqui Chan discussing the very cool Host a Brooch project that she has just completed in conjunction with The National in Christchurch.
Four geeks in a row started a spat of silly photo takings:

 Five Laurens and a Melinda
 Green Puff, Orange Puff, Red Puff, Puffs on display.
 Lynsay's red puff ball which was still very wet got a little hungry and started attacking the popcorn and nibbles.
We all went out for dinner after the opening and had a thoroughly good evening.  We love the Australian Jewellery Geeks!
