Fingers Contemporary NZ Jewellery

Author(s): Damian Skinner; Finn McCahon-Jones


On 22 November 1974, five jewellers opened Aotearoa¿s first contemporary jewellery gallery in a narrow shop at 6 Lorne Street, in the centre of Auckland. Fingers jewellery cooperative was an answer to the challenge of how to make a living from their craft, while keeping true to the alternative spirit of the 1970s. Over the subsequent four decades, Fingers has made a huge contribution to contemporary jewellery, representing many of this country¿s leading jewellers, and providing a home for some of the most sophisticated thinking about craft, materials and adornment in Aotearoa.

In this richly illustrated book, Damian Skinner and Finn McCahon-Jones tell the history of Fingers through objects, texts, images, posters and invitations ¿ all the evidence that demonstrates that the story of Fingers is also the largely untold history of contemporary jewellery and craft in Aotearoa New Zealand
