Jacqui McMaster, Healesville Victoria, was introduced to jewellery in high school. This sparked her passion for the wearable art form. She has studied jewellery and silversmithing at Box Hill TAFE and RMIT, completing an apprenticeship to hone her skills. Recently Jacqui gained fellow of the Gemmological Association of Australia.
Jacqui works mainly in precious metals, using gemstones as a feature with their shapes, inclusions and colours to provide inspiration. Strong influences are the environment, stylised graphic shapes and combining the passion for art and jewellery.
This striking pendant features the rich green tones of malachite in a ribbon design. The piece is crafted from sterling silver and comes with a sterling silver chain.
