Dutch jeweller Felieke van der Leest's first North American solo exhibition opens this weekend, Saturday January 24th. Van der Leest's work is a uniquely creative blend of knitting, crocheting and traditional goldsmithing that often incorporates plastic toys. It's work that is innovative, thoughtful, witty and even fun. I can say without a doubt that it's a must see!
