Melbourne based jeweller Krista McRae is inspired by the idea of wearing art. She feels that her creative process is a reflection of her training as a printmaker, sculptor and jeweller. What begins as a simple line drawing is moulded, carved and constructed into a precious object.
Krista also believes in bringing harmony between the ‘old world’ and the contemporary as away to signify many different types love.
Krista designs and handcrafts engagement and wedding rings for both men and women, as well as other wearable accessories. Her designs are often a response to the unconventional shape and the rare beauty of the gemstones she finds. Krista is especially drawn to the amazing colours of Australian sapphires.
Her jewellery and sculptural works have been exhibited both nationally and internationally.
Along with presenting pieces from her existing bodies of work, Krista also specialises in custom-made designs for clients. She enjoys creating pieces that reflects the client and their story. Presenting them with a sentimental treasure that could be passed on through generations.
