Having been raised in an artistic family, Aurelia naturally gravitated towards the arts – pursuing formal training in goldsmithing and design in Germany before returning to Melbourne to complete an Honours degree in Fine Art at RMIT University. Aurelia Yeomans is the artist, designer and creative director of her unique fine jewellery brand which combines raw and textural aesthetics with elegant, handcrafted luxury.
Aurelia’s pieces are imbued with a spirit that connects us to the mysteries of the earth. Through a profound love and respect for the power and fragility of the natural world – her designs take inspiration from raw geologic form, intricate micro-crystalline structures and the exquisite geometries of nature.
Her pieces are made by carefully and ethically selecting natural materials such as included diamonds and precious gems, celebrating the beauty and unique characteristics of these materials through an aesthetic that is elegant and contemporary. Many of her works are limited series or one of a kind and are handcrafted by casting, soldering and kiln firing. Her self-developed process of enamelling steel yields interesting and unusual surface results and has become a signature of her work. This rich aesthetic repertoire leads to highly distinctive pieces that are both collectable and very wearable, all handmade in her Melbourne studio.
Aurelia welcomes jewellery commissions if you have a specific gemstone or material in mind, please get in touch via sales@eclecticartisans for all bespoke enquiries.
