An exhibition celebrating the opal, a treasure of Australia's natural environment.

INFORMATION

Opals are a beautiful and unique creation of Australiaโ€™s natural environment. Each stone displaying itโ€™s own individual character, seen through the colour and pattern of the stone, scientifically known as play of colour.

This idea poses the question, โ€œwhy does this individuality exist?โ€ The answer, in simple terms, is the stones internal structure.

๐‘†๐‘–๐‘‚2๐‘›๐ป2๐‘‚ is an exhibition showcasing a series of contemporary jewellery pieces which explore this concept, as well as the simple notion that the opal is a beautiful natural creation and something that we should treasure.

This series of work is created from a combination of opals, semi precious stones and precious metals. Combined, both form and colour are used to portray a subtle representation of these fascinating stones.
