It is with great sadness that MJN informs our readers of the passing of Rowena Golton. In April this year, MJN suffered the tragic loss of our much loved friend and treasured member. Ro was a talented maker, inspirational teacher and beautiful spirit. She generously mentored and guided so many of our members, helping MJN to continue to be a forum of emerging and established makers Rowena served as our treasurer for many years, and was a driving force and concept author behind our exhibition ‘Articles of Hope, Adornments for Justice’. It is MJN’s intention to complete this exhibition in Rowena’s honour. As a group, we will miss her infectious laugh and quick wit, her feisty straight talking honesty, her fab arrivals to meetings on ‘Jessica’ and her thoughts, compassion, sensitivity and guidance.
MJN is the caretaker of the remaining items of Rowena’s production jewellery items. To enquire about the availability of these items to purchase, please email exhibitions@
