Jewellery/ceramic collaboration- wallum jewels

Here are some images of new work from the Swamp Cartography collaboration I am doing with jeweller Rebecca Ward.
This brooch was made with Southern Ice porcelain impression from the wallum and set in oxidised sterling silver.
Rebecca made a pate de verre cast of one of our wallum impressions when we were down in Canberra working at Canberra Glassworks. She then set the plaque in sterling silver.

Very effective use of materials the glass, Southern Ice and the oxidised silver. It has a colonial feel to it, due to the style of the framework retaining the cabochons or plaques. Beautiful stuff.

These are looking so beautiful Shannon - I can't wait to see the whole body of work together.
