Nerea Li Santi
Born, raised and living in the City of Greater Dandenong, Nerea's work is influenced by her diverse community and the balance she enjoys between green spaces (adoring her ‘pet’ galahs and ringtail possums) and urban comforts (not too far from the city).
Crafting pieces described as minimalist, whimsical and contemporary, Nerea is a silversmith handcrafting jewellery from her workshop in suburban Melbourne.
Nerea enjoys the manual process of making jewellery and wants the wearer to know that each piece she makes is personal to her. Because it’s such a hands-on process, she feels personally connected to and invested in everything she makes.
Nerea's favourite tools are her antique rolling mill, second-hand jewelers’ saw, torch from Argentina and decades old small, well worn, Spanish pliers inherited from her abuela.
