Ada Hodgson’s signature pieces recreate the fractal beauty of the natural and imaginary world. Her latest work is inspired by the garden, which she's always adored for their overgrown romanticism and mysterious, contemplative nature. This work will evoke hidden, walled gardens full of wonder that look beyond the modern geometry of order. Her first collection, explores a cosmology of imaginary planets: arid deserts that give way to grassy plains cut through by a maze of rivers, and stark bluffs with craggy rock faces that meander along an endless coastline. These planets hold dreamscapes within their landscapes, and when you zoom in on them, there are Secret Gardens to be found.
Working with gold, silver, enamel and precious Australian stones, Ada creates bespoke jewellery that is both classic and contemporary. The artist oversees every stage of the creative process from her studio in the iconic Nicholas Building in the Melbourne CBD, Australia, personally sourcing the finest materials and imparting her signature aesthetic on each and every piece. Ada is committed to locally sourcing sustainable and ethical materials, and uses recycled metals where possible, and Australian mined and cut gemstones.
A qualified gold and silversmith, Ada also creates custom and special occasion jewellery. She is available for consultation in her studio via
appointment to help you capture your vision. Her unique pieces are stocked in stores and galleries throughout Australia, including at Kuwaii and Limb in
Melbourne, and the Institute of Modern Art in Brisbane. All of her jewellery can be made to order and purchased online, with shipping available Australia-wideand internationally.
