 is the second project conceived and designed by jewellery artist and educator, Peter Deckers.

Taking place over two years, graduate jewellers are mentored and work with an inspiring "hero" of their choice.During the period of this collaborative two year project, the participants will share their learning process and progress with the public in a series of exhibitions.  

From the 2-16th September 2015 AVID Gallery is privileged to be hosting one of these exhibitions. 

Two of the Handshake2 participants, artist Amelia Pascoe and her mentor Ruudt Peters were interviewed recently on RNZ's Standing Room Only. It's a fascinating interview and well worth a listen!!!
