Brisbane, Australia-based Roz Eberhard is the founder and director of Eclectic Artisans.
In her own jewellery work—marketed under the label, My Alter Ego—Roz is heavily influenced by urban landscapes through architecture. She has an interest in geometric shapes, which she combines with high-impact colour often found in street art and graffiti.
Roz predominately works within the plastics family, including acrylic, resin, rubber, latex, silicone and polymer, in combination with precious and non-precious metals.
Sublimation printing, hand-dyeing, mould-making, engraving, computer-aided drawing, laser cutting, three-dimensional printing, and traditional metalwork skills, are amongst the techniques she employs in her practice.
In addition to industry experience, Roz’ formal qualifications include a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), and a Bachelor of Arts (Marketing), and she has also undertaken numerous jewellery making and design courses in Australia and internationally. Roz is also the founder and former director of the Sydney Jewellery School.
