Artistic Practice

Whilst completing her jeweller qualifications in 2012/2013, Alicia had the opportunity to explore a variety of different manufacturing techniques, but found resonance with the method of lost lost wax casting, which she now uses almost exclusively in her practice today.

This process involves carving and sculpting unique, intricate forms and textures by hand in jeweller’s wax that will later be cast into precious metal objects for wear. Designing and creating through wax modelling, her outcomes are the direct result of her making process; giving each work a measure of irregularity complimentary to the organic source inspiration, and helps holistically realise her artistic intention.

Alicia's aesthetic style explores contrast between roughly hewn, rocky surfaces and polished, smooth interiors are intended to communicate permanent change; delivering her key message that this too shall pass– describing her jewellery as 'perfectly imperfect'.

Situated in just outside the epicentre of the Melbourne jewellery manufacturing industry, the studio proudly partners with local, family-owned casting houses who specialise in using 100% recycled precious metals.

Once freshly cast, Alicia's creations are brought back to her studio to be lovingly hand-finished.
