Victoria Mason — Silver 'To Hold' Ring with Baroque Pearl
Victoria Mason has made jewellery for over 20 years, starting at Sydney College of the Arts where she completed a bachelor of Visual Arts majoring in Jewellery & Object Design under the guidance of contemporary jewellers such as Helge Larsen, Margaret West & Rowena Gough. After graduation she completed an apprenticeship in Trade Jewellery working under master jeweller Raoul Merten. In 1999 she completed a Diploma in Gemmology, the combination of all 3 studies allowing her to translate ideas into beautifully realised pieces. Victoria started her own jewellery practise in 2002 and has shown her work though galleries such as Makers Mark & Outre Gallery (Vic) as well as exhibitions at Sturt Gallery (NSW) & KickArts Gallery (QLD).
Victoria’s work is held in private collections in Russia, UK, America, China, Scotland, Canada, Denmark, Portugal & many more. For those who admire Victoria Mason’s jewellery, there is often a strong emotional response to her work. Victoria makes a combination of small-production pieces that are sold throughout Australia, as well as one-off commissions & collaborations.
Her 'To Hold' series is about balance – protecting what’s precious while still allowing it space. A highly polished silver sweeps up to cup a freshwater pearl. Strength & beauty, solid & soft.
Materials: 925 Silver, set with a freshwater pearl
