In her practice, Shimara mostly works in 18 carat gold and silver, incorporating gemstones, using reticulation, hammered texturing, and casting techniques. Shimara Carlow is a Scottish contemporary jeweller based in Melbourne, Australia.
A childhood fascination for collecting shells, stones, mermaid's purses, feathers and seed pods found along the sea shore are some of the inspirations behind Shimara’s designs.
Shimara has a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Silversmithing and Jewellery, from the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland; and has also undertaken an artist residency at the Penelope and Oliver Makower Trust Workshops, England.
