Working from her studio in Melbourne, Australia, jeweller Lauren Trojkovic's work brings together sculptural forms and textural embellishment, along with flashes of colour. She is inspired by the naturally occurring linework and patterns seen in nature from above and regularly draws inspiration from aerial photography. Her work draws on these elements, textures and patterns in a contemporary way and sees her create unique pieces of wearable art, utilising alternative materials whilst adhering to sustainable practices.
As well as jewellery and object design, her formal training in graphic design and photography has also influenced her design process and thinking. Her pieces are brought to life using traditional metalsmithing techniques including hand engraving and gem setting as well as the lost wax casting process.
