Kate McLaughlin Jewellery

Drawing inspiration from her architectural background, Kate designs and makes her jewellery from her studio in Perth.

I hand make contemporary jewellery in sterling silver. Using traditional silver-smithing techniques I create geometric pieces, searching for beauty in simplicity. Each piece begins as silver sheet or wire and I work with hand tools to create my designs. I often find inspiration from my local landscape as well as from my architectural background; which informs both my design process and the 3D, sculptural pieces that I create.
