Butterflies and birds form the cornerstone of Emily Arlotte’s self titled jewellery collection. And we don’t mean depictions of…literally bird’s feathers and butterfly wings (ethically sourced we might add) set delicately in beautifully recycled silver, glass and perspex. Such interesting and elaborate components require just the right kind of settings and Emily does this to perfection, taking nothing away from the raw beauty and individuality of nature.

Do you have a day job, if so what is it? 
I work casually for the Hobart Royal Hospital as a Hospital Aide.

When did your business begin and why? 
Once I had finished the jewellery course at the Tasmanian Polytechnic in 2010 there was nothing else I wanted to do. My business really became reality once I began to sell jewellery, which was initially at the market in early 2011! I now stock my jewellery at The Art of Silver and the Spacebar Gallery, which are both in Salamanca, Hobart.

Inspiration/design aesthetic? 
The objects or materials I choose to use inspires my designs. I also draw inspiration from the Art Nouveau period and Victorian Mourning Jewellery.

Designers you admire? 
I admire and gain constant inspiration from local and international designers. I love Alexander Calder’s jewellery and the freedom in which he crafted metal, this is a design aesthetic I aspire to. I also love the artwork of Del Kathryn Barton.

What is your favourite part of Tasmania? 
Tasmania is my home and where I have spent most of my life. I feel connected to this place, its people, the land, and of course the weather!

What do you love about what you do...and any little gripes or niggles? 
I love creating jewellery due to the intricate nature of the craft and the passion I have for collecting natural curiosities. There nothing I can complain about!

What can our lovely customers expect to see you exhibiting? 
Many pretty jewels made from recycled sterling silver, recycled perspex, glass, moth and butterfly wings and feathers. This range of jewellery is inspired by the ideal of immortalising the beauty of butterflies and birds. Hopefully some other surprises too!
