Victoria Mason — 'Grace' Earrings with Amethyst
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 and Object Design under the guidance of contemporary jewellers such as Helge Larsen, Margaret West and 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 three studies allowing her to translate ideas into beautifully realised pieces. Victoria started her own jewellery practice in 2002 and has shown her work though galleries such as Makers Mark and Outre Gallery, as well as exhibitions at Sturt Gallery (NSW) and KickArts Gallery (QLD).
Victoria’s work is held in private collections in Russia, UK, America, China, Scotland, Canada, Denmark, Portugal and 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 and collaborations.
Simply elegant drops featuring a pair of natural, untreated briolette-cut amethyst. The delicate faceting allows light to dance around the gemstone, throwing mauve, lavender and dark purple hues. Amethyst forms part of the quartz family of gemstones and is also the birthstone for February. Sterling Silver shepherd hooks allow for gentle articulation of the gems, highlighting their beauty.
Made from Sterling Sliver (nickel-free), these earrings are light in weight and great for everyday wear.
Each earring is approx 20mm x 7mm and each amethyst is approx 10mm x 7mm.
