Welcome! I’m Ada, a jeweller working out of the iconic Nicholas Building in Melbourne.
I work with gold, silver, and precious gemstones to create bespoke, one-of-a-kind and custom jewellery. I’m committed to using ethically and sustainably sourced fine materials including recycled metals where possible and Australian mined and cut gemstones.
I’m captivated by gardens. Secret ones. Imaginary ones. Overgrown ones. The space where the natural world meets the fabricated and human willed. The romantic mystery of a contemplative green space where a little lush disorder is not such a bad thing. Hidden at first glance, they hold dreamscapes within their landscapes and a fractal beauty which is endlessly mesmerising.
It’s this boundless verdant natural beauty I seek to create in my signature pieces which graft the classical with the contemporary. Take a peek at my recent work here.
It’s not just about me though. I create custom work and I'm available for a free initial consultation via appointment to help you capture your vision. Just jump over to my custom page to get started! I relish being invited into other people’s secret gardens and helping grow things from a seed of wonder or desire.
If you want to see my stuff in person but can’t make it to my studio, I’m stocked in stores and galleries throughout Australia, including at Arbor and Limb in Melbourne, Kin Gallery in Canberra and the Institute of Modern Art in Brisbane.
All of my jewellery can be made to order and purchased online, with shipping available Australia-wide and internationally. Free shipping, if you play your cards right.
