Emma Grace is an emerging designer and maker of contemporary jewellery.
With a degree in Visual Arts: Jewellery Design, she exhibits and sells her work throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Inspiration for her collections is drawn from nature, objects and dreams. The result is a unique blend of fashion, art and exceptional craftsmanship.
Both style and substance are critical to Emma’s vision – with a goal to be an international leader in sustainable jewellery design. In this way, her jewellery is more than just an adornment, it is something to be treasured on many levels.
I am committed to making eye-catching, unique jewellery that is both environmentally and socially sustainable.
Jewellery is a luxury product that, in both its production and development, imposes negative impacts on people and the environment. I aim to reduce some of these significant negative impacts by using recycled materials in my work and integrating sustainability into all aspects of my practice. I know this is an ongoing process so I am continually striving to take it to the next level.
I run a monthly sustainable jewellery workshop (The Treasury) aimed at teaching people how to fix and re-create their old jewellery. In addition to all of this, collaboration is playing an increasing role in my practice – complex sustainability problems can’t be solved by any of us on our own!
Ultimately, by focusing on a sustainable future and contributing to the creation of a jewellery industry that is both beautiful and ethical, I aim to take my practise in a direction that leads to a better outcome for society, environment, maker and consumer - and that inspires others to follow.
