Greg John’s Design For The JAA Design Awards
Greg John’s Jewellers Association of Australia Design Awards Entry
Every few years the Jewellers Association of Australia runs an Australasian jewellery design and manufacturing competition.
This year our three jewellers created unique pieces to be submitted. As there was no specific design brief, each jeweller had their own motivation and inspiration to drive them.
Greg’s piece was selected as a finalist for the awards.
The creation: After The Big Bang
Designed and hand crafted on site in our workshop – ‘After The Big Bang’ is a contemporary pearl enhancer for opera length pearls. Crafted by hand in 18 carat yellow and white gold, it is set with a trilliant shaped blue zircon and black and white diamonds.
The inspiration behind the jewellery
‘A passion to create, inspired by the ultimate creation – the Big Bang. With a superb blue zircon as the central focus, the outward “explosion”’ of precious metals and diamonds hold on-to the pearls as if by a magnetic attraction.’
Our onsite workshop
