Karla Way — Silver Bushy Tail Pendant
Karla Way is a Melbourne based jeweller who has completed studies in gold and silversmithing at both NMIT and RMIT University. Exhibiting work nationally and internationally, Way employs both traditional and modern materials, naturally occurring and man made.
She is interested in the transformative ability of materials and draws inspiration from the extensive pre/history of jewellery, hollowware and personal object. Familiar forms are engulfed and obscured, and in some cases, new structures erupt from an amorphous body, implying that therein lies an unearthed treasure.
This pendant series was created especially for Craft's Supermarket exhibition.
Materials: hand-formed acrylic beads and silk thread
