GM Jewellery

 

 

From her studio in Ballarat (Victoria, Australia) Georgia Morison creates jewellery pieces by hand, continually exploring the qualities that metal has to offer.

Inspired by the intersection between visual art and practical self expression, GM Jewellery began when Georgia found an affinity with the properties of metal as a medium. Finding meaning in the technique and process as much as in the finished piece is what underpins the ideas behind GM Jewellery. If you have an idea in mind for a personalised piece of jewellery, please contact georgiamorison0@gmail.com for any bespoke enquiries.

I would like to acknowledge the Traditional owners of the land on which I work. I pay my respects to the Elders and Ancestors; past, present, and emerging of the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin Nation. Sovereignty has never been ceded.

 

  1. What kind of work / making do you do?

    I work mainly with sterling silver and some gold to make jewellery that you can wear everyday. I’m currently working with more brass at the moment to experiment with creating some sculptural objects.

    Why?

    I was feeling a lack of purpose a few years ago, and I felt I needed to keep learning and trying new things creatively after deciding that I didn’t want to go into the film and television industry at this point in my life. I ended up taking portrait drawing classes and jewellery making classes, and realised that I felt closer to myself when I was learning and especially spending time practising creative skills. Jewellery immediately felt like a perfect fit as I love to use my hands, I love to know how things are made, and I find the tangible results of the work satisfying.

  2. What’s important / special about your work?

    My work is important to me because I get fulfillment equally from creating the pieces to seeing and wearing the finished product. Jewellery can hold a very sentimental place in people’s lives and I am always aiming to create pieces that people can form an attachment to.

  3. How do you make your work?

    The two main techniques I use are hand fabrication with metal and wax carving.

  4. How do you want your work to make people feel?

    I want people to feel like they have something precious that complements and adds to their individual style.
