Abby Seymour — Silver and Brass Banksia Necklace
Abby Seymour’s practice spans jewellery, objects and print. Abby’s practice began as a printmaker, and the nuanced and personal line and dot patterning that characterise her jewellery and ceramics have evolved from this formative background in consideration of surface.
Textural detailing and a distinct language of patterning combine with a subtlety of form in Abby’s works, and through her application to detail and the hand finishing of every piece, she is both conscious of creating a sustainable practice, and also of pushing her artisanal abilities. Working in silver, brass, porcelain and gold for Craft Victoria, Abby’s beautiful pieces are made to combine with any of the other pieces in her range, encouraging personal interpretation and fun.
The Banksia Necklace is a boldly textured piece which incorporates a section of Banksia pod in brass, suspended from a silver chain. The details highlight the intriguing elements our native Australian plants.
This design is part of the Botanica collection which captures both the complexity and simplicity of Australia’s unique native flora.
Each piece is an abstraction of botanical life, harmoniously balancing intricate organic details with understated beauty.
Material: sterling silver, brass
