I have a friend who has recently found an interest in metal smithing
including jewelry. she lives in Australia and does not know where to
find supplies. Does anyone have answers that I can share with her?

In Brisbane, the AJS (Australian Jewelry Supplies) Corner Albert St
& Burnett Lane in the CBD has a pretty good selection.

based?

I live in Tasmania Marilyn and do a bit of silver work for my whips
and sadly I have found that it is much cheaper for me to get all my
supplies tools,silver,gold etc overseas and have it shipped in. Even
with the shipping costs I have found it to still to be 25% cheaper.I
get all of my metals and most of my tools from Santa Fe jewelers
supplies

http://www.sfjssantafe.com Great prices, excellent customer service
and like I said the best prices around. Usual disclaimer.

Kind Regards

There are two main ones I use…

AJS (Australian Jewellery Supplies): tools and such
(http:/www.ajsonline.com.au/)

And the other is A&E Metals: precious metals and such
(http://www.aemetal.com.au/)

There are others I’m sure but those are the ones I use most.

Hi Marilyn,

Depending on where she lives in Australia there are many tool and
jewellery supplies in pretty much every capital city. House of
Jewellery ( http://www.hoj.com.au ) is probably the most well known,
they have quite an extensive catalogue and are more than happy to
post it out to remote areas, not that i ever tried. If HOJ aren’t if
the area they will almost certainly know someone who is, everyone in
the trade knows each other and are more than happy to help out.

Goold luck with it all,
Jonathon L. Calleija

Coming out of lurkdom here - nice to have a question I can answer!

Tell your friend to try:

http://www.aemetal.com.au/ for online ordering
http://www.ajsonline.com.au/ in most capital cities
http://www.koodak.com.au/main.php Melbourne
http://www.hoj.com.au/

and Seivers Australia have stores in some capital cities - Perth &
Melbourne anyway - Not sure about the other cities.

Cheers

Thanks to all who sent suggestions…Pam, Jonathon, Thomas, Berni,
Roger, John and anyone who I missed naming. I am sorry that I dont
know where in Australia she lives but it sounds as if there should be
no problem in finding a supplier.
