I am in love with Julie Blyfield‘s jewelry. Her work is held in many of the most prestigious museums in the world, including The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the National Gallery of Australia Canberra, and the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.

“I create botanical forms from sheets of pure and sterling silver using the technique known as chasing. I work the annealed metal sheet with fine steel tools to texture and create surface pattern, taking advantage of the natural distortion occurring during this process. I enjoy the way the annealed metal moves and shifts as it is work hardened with the small steel chasing tools when I develop the asymmetrical organic forms.” –Julie Blyfield

PS. After doing some research I found out that Julie Blyfield  doesn’t have a personal website. That’s why I linked her name to Kunaki Gallery , which represents her work.
