Graduating in Jewellery and Object Design from Enmore Design Centre (SIT), Erin Keys established her practice at her studio in the Blue Mountains exhibiting nationally and working as a production assistant for Sydney based contemporary jewellers. In 2006 Erin left Australia to travel to Eastern Europe and lived in Bosnia Herzegovina until joining the Metal Design Studio JamFactory in 2008. She has exhibited nationally and most recently was selected to exhibit at Talente, International Trade Fair Munich and Preziosa Young in Florence Italy and Galeria Sztuki, Poland.
Drawing from ideas that are based in mark making, the cursive style of calligraphy Keys uses explores concepts of communication and language. The calligraphic pen strokes that begin on paper, transform into graphic metal objects, and in reclaiming ownership of the body, can be best understood as the repurposing of an idea into space. Using traditional jewellery making techniques her work captures a gestural energy that is suggestive of street ‘tags’. Abstracted from their origin these calligraphic forms become aesthetic artefacts of Keys’ urban landscape.

Tassia Joannides received her Bachelor of Fine Art with Honours from Monash University in Melbourne before moving to Adelaide to work in the Metal Studio at JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design. After four years living and working interstate Tassia returned to Melbourne to continue her practice. She regularly exhibits her jewellery and sculptures both nationally and overseas, recently travelling with her work to exhibitions in Japan, Germany and the USA.
Tassia sees her practice as an investigation of form and how it can interact sensitively with the body, sometimes even as an extension of it. Typically she works with flexible materials which aid this special interaction and inspire her to push the boundaries of three dimensional soft structures.

Kath Inglis jewelled bangle

 Raised in Darwin, Kath Inglis moved to Adelaide to study contemporary jewellery. After graduating from the South Australian School of Art in 2000, Inglis continued to develop her practice by working from a number of studios, including the renowned Gray Street Workshop and, as a Design Associate, at JamFactory Metal Design Studio.
In 2005, Inglis partnered with Naomi Schwartz, to establish soda and rhyme│jewellery design studio. A combination workshop, retail and gallery space, soda and rhyme features exhibitions of small scale objects and contemporary jewellery.
Inglis’ signature works are wearable pieces constructed from coloured and hand carved PVC. Inspired and intuitive patterns are cut into the surface of the plastic, transforming this seemingly ordinary material into something precious.
Inglis’ practice is multi-faceted and includes frequent exhibitions in national and international galleries, large scale collaborative public art projects and lecturing in jewellery at the University of South Australia.

EXPO ‘Some and None: Jewellery as Graphics’ David Neale – Gallery 2-JamFactory, Adelaide (Australia) – 10 avril-16 mai 2010

David Neale – new jewellery

EXPO 'Some and None: Jewellery as Graphics' David Neale - Gallery 2-JamFactory, Adelaide (Australia) - 10 avril-16 mai 2010 dans Australie (AU) DavidNealeColourbrooch

Signs and stories? The body as a site for drawing?…Neale shows how, with this collection of eye-catching contemporary wearables. Borrowing from graphics, painting, collage and line-work, Neale uses these techniques at his jeweller’s bench to make signs for the body and to tell wearable stories. Through the considered play of opposites such as flat vs. deep, austere vs. ostentatious, rough vs. refined, precious vs. poor, shiny vs. sfumato, gravel vs. gold and some vs. none, each piece resolves into a striking graphic statement.
