Amelia Marks is a contemporary jeweller from Melbourne, Australia. Winner of the Design Institute of Australia 'Australasian Graduate of the Year' Award 2017 (jewellery and objects), she has exhibited locally and overseas, and currently sells her work in galleries and art museums in Australia.
"Inspired by botanical illustrations and the beauty of the world around us, I like to bring imagery directly into my work by using printed aluminium. Most of the images I use are photographed in my local neighbourhood or friends gardens. I then edit and manipulate the images before transferring them onto aluminium. Aluminium is wonderfully light, and has a soft reflective shine, which makes my pieces easy and light to wear. I combine this with an element of movement in most of my pieces to create a play of light."
Aluminium is utilised with gold and silver, so her pieces are safest for the most sensitive skin - and all finished to a professional standard.
