Contemporary Handmade Jewellery
Kate Hunter is a contemporary jeweller with a Bachelor of Design in Jewellery and Metalsmithing. From her small home studio on the northern beaches of Cairns, she works intuitively with materials of all kinds. She explores conventional and industrial surface treatments by juxtaposing precious and non-precious metals, natural and found objects with traditional domestic crafts of knitting, crochet and embroidery. Kate Hunter creates jewellery pieces that are small and functional wearable sculptures. “I am fascinated with the magic and power a piece of jewellery can have and how it can become part of the wearer.
