Amanda Croatto | Jewellery
Amanda Croatto is an emerging contemporary jeweller/artist who lives and works in Melbourne; her studio practice is at Mycelium in East Brunswick. Amanda has a degree in Textile Design from RMIT, and there is a strong element of surface design and illustration in her work.
Amanda’s work expresses many of her areas of interest and inspiration: people, surface design, texture, humour and jewellery. She uses a wide range of materials including sterling silver, copper, titanium, printed and anodised aluminium, plastics, textiles, and beads. She employs collage, printmaking, enamelling, layering, and riveting to incorporate repurposed and found objects into her colourful and playful work. Amanda creates surface finishes, and relishes in the range of patinas and pattern that it is possible to achieve.
