“As a jeweller I am driven by the process of design and manufacturing – my artistic practice evolves from a process of specimen collecting in the bush to photographing and sketching prior to creation. My work is a reflection of my personal connection to Tasmania and a love for the intricate and delicate details within our unique landscape and flora.” Emily Snadden, 2015.
