Arita Ghedini is an emerging contemporary jeweller and artist based in Hobart, Tasmania. Her collections are crafted by hand in precious metals incorporating gemstones and pearls. Both traditional and modern processes are utilized in the creation of her timeless jewellery. Arita’s current work is an exploration of the relationship between nature and memory and the interconnection of the two. Her work incorporates botanical motifs and textures referenced from nature coupled with gemstones. All purposefully chosen to invite the wearer to recall a memory or moment and draw a personal connection. The uneven, textured nature of her work is reminiscent of an uncovered ancient relic; a perfect metaphor for memory and life shaping events. Through her work Arita aims to create items of sentiment, markers of moments and objects of personal meaning.
