Joanne Gillies

    

Based in the Outer Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, I started working in the jewellery industry in 2002, working my way along in a manufacturing jewellery store from retail sales, to assistant manager, and then branching into design. Wanting to be able to create jewellery from my designs myself I began learning basic skills in jewellery manufacture and repair, and in 2008 I completed the Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology - Jewellery at NMIT (North Melbourne Institute of TAFE).
Working for myself since October 2009, I have been able to branch out from traditional gold and silversmithing, into more ornamental works, such as snow domes, which I have developed a little bit of an obsession with! I also enjoy incorporating colour into my work using metal rather than stones.

In April 2015 I became a Practicing Affiliate member of The Gold and Silversmiths Guild of Australia.
