Jodie Norton is a Launceston jeweler who uses many different techniques to create her gold and silver jewellery. Lost wax casting, cuttlefish casting, metal collage of vintage jewellery, she creates individual pieces that often combine 9 carat gold with sterling silver. Always individual, the works are organic in form, using cast rain forest leaves and nuts to embellish a silver twig or basic form. Unpolished rubies and sapphires are used in cuttlefish cast rings to add preciousness without the formality of traditional adornment.
