The Mixed Element collection comes from my love of natural elements and textures. Growing up surrounded by bush land in south Sydney, its built on a true appreciation for nature and the beauty it has to offer. A collaboration between my father and I, the timber elements are all hand crafted by my dad, John Cooper, in his home workshop on the NSW south coast. All timbers are ethically sourced reclaimed timber, collected by my father and myself. Once shaped the elements are brought back to my home studio where they are then incorporated into Jewellery, by adding precious metals and gemstones. Each piece is unique and one of a kind.
