Julie Carter has been a practising Gold and Silversmith for the last 30 years. Her love of design and admiration of antique jewellery has been the inspiration for her contemporary work.
Julie received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Gold and Silversmithing at RMIT, then continued to gain experience in the Melbourne jewellery trade. Gold, silver precious and non-precious gems as well as other materials are used to create work that reflect her love of travel, architecture and culture.
Her work takes elements from nature and her urban surroundings to create pieces that although simple in form, express more complex aesthetics. Julie’s work has been exhibited overseas and is currently held in the NGV Melbourne permanent collection.
