FEATURE ARTIST - Natalia Milosz-Piekarska, Melbourne, Australia.

Royal Parade neckpiece,  timber, turquoise, acrylic and glass beads, paint, 2010.

With an initial degree in Design/Visual Communication, Natalia Milosz-Piekarska went on to complete a BA (Honours) in Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT. Natalia now works from her Melbourne based studio as a contemporary jeweller and artist, making and participating in a diverse range of projects. Natalia’s primary focus lays in realm of amuletic and talismanic adornment. With much of her research delving into various aspects of superstition, folklore and ritual, her work explores our human inclination towards charmed objects and the power of belief. Natalia has an intuitive and playful approach to her materials and practice, employing a myriad of traditional and unorthodox elements in order to create pieces that emanate a sense of character and spirit.

FEATURE ARTIST - Lauren Simeoni, Adelaide, Australia

Woodland neckpiece, artificial plants, plastic beads, brass, 2010

Lauren Simeoni is an Adelaide based artist whose work is an homage to the senses - a wearable passport to a whimsical ‘other’ reality. Simeoni finds the beautiful and seductive in what is otherwise thought of as mundane. Her work toys with mass-production processes and she frequently reconfigures mass produced objects to create wearables of seductive beauty.  

Simeoni has a Bachelor of Arts in Gold and Silversmithing for Canberra School of Art, which she followed with a Design Associateship at the JamFactory in Adelaide. She exhibits widely nationally and internationally.
