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...

Nadene Carr Infiltrates Day Two of JEMposium and the Pin Swap Soiree - 10FEB12

Day Two of Jemposium included four intense sessions followed by the Pin Swap Soiree at Havana Bar and the opening of Wanna Swap Your Ring - Atelier Ted Noten at Photospace.

Sinead Jury and Lynsay Raine wearing Nadene Carr.

Marcel Van Kamp who was standing in for Ted Noten did a lolly scramble after his talk.  It was no longer a case of 'Ooh you have a piggy ring!' (that was so yesterday).  Now a select and very special few became owners of a Yellow Van Ons Ted Noten ring and it soon became the item to covet.

Eloise Wearing Sharon Fitness and one of my favourite Lisa Walker brooches.

Lucy Pierpont wearing Nadene and Lucy, Lynsay wearing Nadene, Sharon and Sinead, Kerre wearing Jacqui Chan

Kristin eating chips and wearing the most admired Nadene of the Day - she's on to a winner there.

We got a bit silly while we were waiting for the pin swap to start.  Here Renee is dipping her David Bielander Shrimp in the shrimp dish.

And then taking a bite which fueled a quick round of 'Do something silly with your jewellery':
Sharon brushing her hair with her Nadene and pretending to be Dr Evil.
Nadene listening to her Nadene pendant.
Lucy looking for her third Nadene eye.
Raewyn placing her vintage Nadene in an appropriate spot.
And Fran taking advantage of a whole in her Ross Malcolm.

Finally!  The Pin Swap box arrived.

This fueled a frenzy of 'Who did you get?' which was a brilliant way to get to meet some new people and go on a hunt to find the maker of our pins.  Ann Culy got mine.

Sharon wearing her Michelle Wilkinson brooch.

Jacqui Chan wearing her Kristin D'Agostino.

Vivien Atkinson wearing her Fabrizio Tridenti (lucky lucky!), Kathryn Yeats wearing Nadene and Nadine Smith wearing a brooch who's maker I cant remember, but also wearing her rather clever leg mowing pendant.

Thanks to Tuatara brewery, we had a great time at the Ted Noten opening.  All the piggy rings have gone now, much to the disappointment of all those who lack a miss piggy ring.
