Robin Wells

Robin studied jewellery and metalsmithing at Curtin University, Western Australia, graduating in 1991. She completed her Certificate IV in Gemological studies in 2001.

Robin has exhibited widely, with recent exhibitions including Illuminate at Studio Ingot, Melbourne and Love Lace at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. Robin was also selected to be part of the Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor Exhibition of 100 brooches by 100 women from Queensland that toured nationally in 2014.

Growing up in rural Western Australia, surrounded by bush land has had a lasting impression on Robin, with her work being an ongoing narrative of concerns for our natural environment and the effect we have on it.

Robin employs a variety of techniques, paying particular attention to the surface treatment of metal. The traditional technique of Keum-Boo is used, where a very fine layer of 24ct gold is painstakingly cut and layered on to the fine silver surface and fused using heat and burnishing tools. Imagery referencing our native plants and wildflowers is embossed on the surface of many of the pieces she creates.
