Justine Austen — Oxidised Silver ‘Smile’ Necklace
Balancing somewhere between fine art and kitsch, Justine’s creations seem quirky, playful, absurd and offbeat. Justine recently completed a Master of Fine Art at RMIT University researching the relationship between the body, architecture and jewellery. She gained a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Gold and Silversmithing from Monash University in 1998 and followed her passion for gemmology, gaining a Certificate IV in Gemmology from the Gemmological Association of Australia in 2004. Justine has exhibited in both solo and group shows nationally and is currently based in Melbourne.
