Approaching kitsch, irony and distortion of scale with aplomb, Bianca Mavrick’s designs are dynamic, site-specific sculptures that explore the link between individual expression and shared visual language. Bianca is a trained silversmith and holds a Bachelor of Fine Art (Jewellery and Small Objects).
Maintaining an active sculpture and contemporary jewellery practice, her wearable designs can be viewed as an aesthetic extension of her art. With a background in Industrial Design, Bianca is known for pushing the boundaries of production beyond the precepts of traditional jewellery making.
From her studio in Brisbane, Australia, she pits artisanal processes against industrial fabrication, resolving the two through handmade techniques that combine the precision of fine craftsmanship with a distinct maker’s mark. Vivid colours are her calling card, expressed through tactile materials such as cold enamel, hand-turned and painted timber, sterling silver and precious stones.
Materials: sterling silver, hand enamelled champlevé earring with hand coloured resin comb motif.
Dimensions: length 10.5cm, width 5.5cm, thickness 0.4cm (resin bead), thickness 1.5cm (silver bead).
