Thank you Libby for the introduction to contemporary jeweller Ari Athans. Based in Brisbane, Ari worked in the mining and exploration industry before turning her love for gems into a creative outlet that we can all enjoy.
Ari creates limited edition neckpieces, earrings and rings that are both simple and stunning. I love the clever riff on 'Diamond Crytal Earrings' in gold and silver that would work well for day or night. And I'm putting the wrap bangle on my birthday wish list.
Ari recently exhibited in the 'Freestyle: New Australian Design for Living' show featuring 40 Australian designers across Australia and at the Triennale Museum in Milan.
You can find the latest Ari Jewellery designs on the Website, and for sale at the gallery workshop at 1/760 Brunswick St, New Farm, Queensland, Australia.
