Review on Carry, a mixed exhibition at the Old Bakery gallery

"Tineke Van der Eecken made beguilding bags from handknitted or crochet sterling silver, copper and coloured wire.
Incorporated with the wire were glass beads, semiprecious stones (some found by her geologist husband) and seed pearls.
Her bags were themed with such titles as Eclipse, Nullarbor and Desert Scene and were based on actual places and events that Tineke had experienced.
Many of the bags were hand painted silk and Tineke had made all of the fittings and clasps."
