THE SPIRIT OF JEWELLERY
Capturing stories and moments in time'It's the heart and the soul of jewellery which attracts me as a designer. And for the wearer it is the connections made and the new stories created'
Jewellery is about the connection you make with it. The interactions you have with it. And it’s both a physical and an emotional thing. Jewellery isn’t a throw away accessory or something forgotten, discarded at the bottom of your jewellery box. You wear it so it can talk of the connections it has to places. To people. To memory. Jewellery is a treasure to be passed down through time and generations, so old stories can be re-told and new stories made.

As an architect, Craig bought his own design aesthetic, and his influence is evident through all the pieces of jewellery he commissioned. The last piece is for his first son called Jetton. A Jetton is an ancient coin, and this is where we drew inspiration for this pendant. One side depicts the St George’s Cross representing his mother's British origin and the other side depicts a star from the constellation of the Southern Cross on the Australian flag, a symbol of his father's Australian origin.
