Vicki Mason — 'Wattle It Be,' 2021

Every plant has a story to tell. As I dive deeper into learning about the wattle species, I'm reminded of the Albert Einstein quote, "The more I learn the more I realise how much I don't know". This necklace is charged with a call to plant wattles in our gardens. It lists just a handful of species.

Vicki Mason is a contemporary jeweller based in Naarm/Melbourne. Research based, Mason’s work interrogates relationships between people and plants. Her works tell stories about life in contemporary Australia, while also building knowledge and awareness about the natural world in a technologically focused age. Mason’s work is held in public and private collections both nationally and internationally, and she is on the board of the World Crafts Council, Australia.


Established by Craft Victoria in 2015, the Victorian Craft Awards is a biennial event presenting and celebrating excellence in contemporary craft practice. The Awards showcase exceptional works utilising craft skills, processes and materials and include emerging, mid-career and established craftspeople from across Victoria.
