FEATURE ARTIST - Peter Kruger, Adelaide, Australia

Lost and Found Bracelet, acrylic, sterling silver, 2009

Blending from different styles and periods, including deco, sci-fi, Futurism, and the relics of hunter-gatherer societies, Kruger’s work appears as the artefacts of a tribe somehow lost in time. Peta Kruger completed first a Bachelor of Visual Communication at the University of South Australia in 2003 followed by a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2008 at the Adelaide Centre for the Arts. She has worked professionally as a graphic designer and as a jeweller, as assistant to London jeweller’s Scott Wilson and Jane Adam in 2007. She is currently an Associate of the JamFactory, Adelaide in the Metal Design Studio.
