Meet the Jeweller

Erin Pearce is an award winning Jeweller who is passionate about creating functional pieces that draw inspiration from both the natural environment, and the brilliant designs of Modernist Masters who have come before her. 

Erin’s creative journey began with a Fine Arts degree but she soon realised that what she truly loved was working with metals and stones to create unique pieces that were both fascinating and functional. The journey to becoming a trade-qualified Manufacturing Jeweller allowed Erin to focus on further exploration of technique and a desire to learn through every piece she creates. Her pieces demonstrate a constant consideration of the placement of both herself, and her work, between the worlds of Contemporary Art and traditional jewellery manufacturing.
