girls against gold 2009, janis valdivia

simplus, triangle ring, 925 silver with painted black gesso, 2009
I’m a Sydney based designer/maker and the main source of inspiration for my work comes from abstract paintings and the sea. In particular I’m interested in capturing shapes and forms. I like the asymmetry of objects that connects with basic things in life and finding the special in the ordinary.
My work is predominantly hand fabricated using sterling silver. It also incorporates other materials such as delrin, perspex, felt, bone, glass and 18k gold. I use traditional metalsmithing techniques to form each piece but employ contemporary methods to create unique and textured surface.
