After many years working with precious stones, Melbourne artist Gillian Hillman had returned to an exploration of texture in metals.
Interesting surface patterns from brushed, matte, finely grained or scribed textures give her classic gold and silver designs a contemporary edge.
Gillian is an accomplished artist having exhibited her work in many galleries both in Australia and abroad.
Rich red garnet beads are interspersed with glossy black spinel. A precious pink sapphire sits front and centre. The strand is finished off with a 9 karat gold clasp.
