Naracoorte, South Australia
My work is inspired by what I see around me in the natural world and also my love of ancient things and geology. As a palaeontologist, I am drawn to fossils and unusual stones. I like to try to convey a story with my pieces. While a lot of my early work was wirework, I now find myself fascinated with metals and silversmithing.
Materials: Sterling silver, copper, Chrysocolla, London blue topaz
Dimensions: Necklace is 18 inches, pendant is around 3.5 inches
This piece was inspired by the birds who live in the wetlands near my home. This piece was entirely hand-fabricated from silver and copper sheet and natural gemstones.
