Elizabeth Bower is a young Sydney jewellery designer with an innovative, creative and beautiful range of pieces inspired by the Australian environment and the romance of nature.

Elizabeth's exquisite original designs are hand-made by the jeweller in Sydney and can be seen at stockists in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. Elizabeth's jewellery has also received interest from exclusive stores in Brisbane, Tokyo, London and Rome.

The delicacy and quality of her pieces stems from the creative use of materials such as sterling silver, freshwater pearls, fishing line and Swarovski crystals. Her elegant and feminine work evokes the colours and shapes of the Australian environment, from the coral reef to the flowers of the bush.

I am a self-taught craftsman, working from my studio in Warburton (Victoria) my favourite metal is Titanium, which in conjunction with sterling silver ,polyester-resin and fossils, allow me to create pieces of work, where colour plays a strong part in the design.
Titanium is a light grey metal which responds to treatment with heat, in a range of colours.
My work is designed for small production-lines and one off pieces.

Since 1977 I work with Heidi Wild ( also jeweller ) together in a partner-ship.

Yvette de Mestre
A love for gems and a passion for creating jewellery led Yvette to where she is today.

Yvette studied Jewellery & Object design at Enmore Design Centre, Sydney and then continued on with a Jewellery apprenticeship in 1996. She is also a certified Gemmologist and has taught jewellery design since 2000. Yvette then ventured overseas to work for London jewellers and is now currently designing & creating jewellery in her own studio in Australia. Her range of work is sold in galleries & Boutiques throughout Australia.

Organic & symmetrical shapes are predominate throughout Yvette’s designs, which are created in Gold & Silver. Her work consists of unique colourful gemstones that allow movement in each piece. Yvette’s jewellery designs are fashioned to create a contemporary appearance, yet are very practical for an everyday occasion.

Making jewellery is an art form and provides me with hours of pleasure and satisfaction.

Susan Frisch
It’s her love of the Australian landscape that informs much of Susan’s work. Her practice is concerned with the preservation of these rugged, yet fragile, environments, which are under the ever increasing threat of destruction.
Her current work experiments with the combination of metal and glass, the properties of both mediums echo elements of the environment, glass for its fragility and vulnerability and metal for its strength and resilience.
Susan has exhibited work both locally and nationally.

I am currently occupied with the Japanese alloy shibuichi, and Japanese ideals of beauty and truth that seem to click so well with this rich material. By juxtaposing basic shapes and forms with rich and intricate surface colours and textures I am able to create a balance between simplicity and complexity. These explorations result in playful works that push the boundaries of conventional perceptions of the material, whilst still staying true to the essence of the metal.

Leoni & Vonk’s new collection continues the theme of futurism with a feminine feel. The pieces focus on construction rather than frills using pared down materials such as hand cut brushed sterling silver, 9ct gold plate and beautiful highly faceted semi- precious stones.
Leoni & Vonk are well known for their unique and luxurious use of colour and this is again reflected in the new range. Subtle pinks, greys, and yellows together with sterling silver and 9ct gold plate combine to produce their most beautiful collection yet. All their pieces are designed and made in St Kilda, Melbourne.

Also a painter for the past 15 years I have worked exclusively as a jeweller, exploring the infinite possibilities of glass, semi-precious stones, and wire to create timeless & unique pieces that will become heirlooms.

Based in Sydney, Australia, I have been making my own glass beads for over 12years, using the ancient technique of lampworking. I use a wide colour palette of Italian glass rods, 23ct gold and silver leaf to create original components. Each of my beads is one off, every design different, and every piece of jewellery truly unique.
Combined with my own beads, I use semi precious beads, such as Queensland boulder opal, turquoise from Arizona, freshwater pearls from Asia, amethyst and carnelian from India and many others from all around the world. I work with 9ct gold, silver, brass and enamelled wire, or high strength, nylon coated stainless steel cable to create my pieces. I am fastidious about the durability, and wearability of my work.

Adina Jozsef’s jewellery is contradictory and complex, classic yet edgy, exacting yet dynamic, hand-crafted yet precision-engineered. With sleek lines, superior materials and high polish punctuated by gemstones, quirky geometrical motifs and spots of bright colour, her work traverses a variety of settings.

Believing that superior craftsmanship has intrinsic worth, she has gained a deep, almost intuitive, understanding of metal. It is a material with hardness and resistance requiring physical effort to master. Her jewellery’s symmetrical shapes and high polish defy its handmade origins; and yet despite the surgical overtones it is comfortable and rewarding to wear.

Paul Mason, a Victorian Glass Artist, is passionate about Glass.

Working from his private studio at Mount Martha on the Mornington Peninsula, Paul’s enthusiasm for exploration and his desire to experiment beyond the traditional boundaries of glass has led to a fresh, innovative and contemporary feel to his work through the unique use of colour, light and texture.

The incorporation of strong design with a thorough and precise understanding of the technical applications of glass has allowed Paul the freedom to create stunning pieces of work with both high, and at times, delicate visual impact.

Whether it’s his bold use of traditional and contemporary Lampworked Glass Bead making techniques, or his fresh approach to Fused Glass Jewellery, Paul remains committed to exploring the artistic and seemingly endless applications of glass and to creating beautiful pieces of Lampwork and Fused Glass Jewellery for people to admire and fall in love with.

Mary Odorcic graduated from RMIT University. Mary draws inspiration from nature, the textures, shapes, forms and colours of natural objects. Mary firstly, begins her work through the exploration of these elements via simple coloured sketches. From these sketches Mary begins the working process, the experimentation and amalgamation of materials, this is where her ideas evolve into 3 dimensional pieces.
Colour is an important and vital part of Marys work. She is inspired by the colour of various plants and flora. Mary tries to capture and incorporate the colour in nature in her work directly by embedding assorted flora and natural objects in resin.

My involvement with antiquities of the Greek classic period led to my interest in jewelry. I first experimented with bolder designs in German-silver, copper, brass, gilding metal and leather. For my current work I am using sterling silver and gold – more malleable metals which lend themselves naturally to the flowing designs I currently employ. I like my jewelry to be wearable and comfortable – not necessarily a challenge to the concept of jewelry, but in harmony with the wearer. My environment is reflected to a certain extent in my designs and provides me with constant stimulation. My task is to translate everyday patterns and forms into non-representative semi-abstract configurations.
The primeval shape of the scroll can be experimented with and developed into ever new exciting variations – a constant search for a new perspective on ancient concepts.
