Lynn Kelly makes jewellery about Central Otago

In Central, her new jewellery exhibition, Lynn Kelly shows the work she made as a result of her Wild Creations residency in the Old Post Office at Bannockburn.  The six weeks residency was sponsored by the Department of Conservation and Creative New Zealand, and allowed Lynn the time and space to be inspired by the local plant life and other natural curiosities.
Lynn tells Howard some of the secrets about the work
