'The Jewel' by Todd Turner
Courtesy of the Artist is excited to present The Jewel, an exhibition showcasing both new designs and retrospective pieces by the Australian jeweller and poet Todd Turner.
In rings, brooches, earrings, neckpieces and bracelets, the work on display will not only offer an insight into the extraordinary breadth of Turner's technical accomplishment as a designer and maker of fine jewellery but will also give viewers an opportunity to witness the detailed development of his process, from early draft sketches through to exquisite finalised designs and finished pieces.
As part of the exhibition, many rare and precious gemstones and diamonds will be arranged and visually presented, accompanied with their intended designs.
Renowned for his meticulous attention to detail, each piece of Todd Turner's jewellery is uncompromising and made entirely by hand.
Each piece begins with a sketch and is often developed in collaboration with clients who are seeking a one-off or personalised design.
"My sole focus is upon creating one-off pieces and signature designs. Having been a maker of fine jewellery for almost thirty years, I see my role as being in service to the jewel."
