Last month, Courtesy of the Artist launched the third instalment of Rare Earth: Australian Made. This stunning showcase featured new jewellery by resident artists Cinnamon Lee, Cesar Cueva, Todd Turner, Emma Fielden, Fealofani Elisara and myself.
All six artists created new jewellery which celebrated Australia’s most unique and rare gems. For this showcase, I worked with crystal opal from Andamooka in South Australia (which I sourced on my visit to Andamooka last year!), boulder opal from Bulgroo in Queensland, sapphires from Rubyvale, Queensland, sapphires from Tasmania, Argyle diamonds from Western Australia as well as the most beautiful natural turquoise from Central Australia.
Also part of this showcase was a display of fresh Australian natives by Nina Cueva, the rarest of gemstones by Doug Menadue, a custom scent by Ainslie Walker and the most exquisite ceramics by Avi Amesbury.
You can view my collection on my website here. All pieces are available to purchase exclusively through Courtesy of the Artist in the Strand Arcade.
