Monica works with a range of materials including hot glass and metals to make wearable works of art. Over the past ten years, handmade lampworked beads have been the focus of many of Monica's pieces, however there has always been an occasional side-step to play with a new medium in the jewellery making process. Monica works full time locally with CODA inc.. and volunteers on a number of creative committee including Birregurra Community Arts Group popup gallery and creative Otways. Monica regularly displays at Gellibrand River Gallery, Murray Street Market and Ugly Stuff in Birregurra

The medium I work in mostly is clay which I have been exploring for many years. I hand-build birdbaths and garden planters using earthenware/ stoneware clay. I think the tactile, earthy, three dimensional quality and forgiving nature of the clay is what keeps drawing me back to this medium. I also hold pottery classes in my studio two days a week.

Since undertaking a course in silversmithing 5 years ago, I have been creating contemporary handcrafted jewellery using sterling silver and other precious metals. The very idea of turning something as solid as a sheet of silver into a piece of wearable art has fascinated me from the moment I tried it. Each day in the studio is full of learning, experimenting and making and is endlessly intriguing.
The processes I use are traditional silversmithing techniques and often include etching images or shapes into a piece. I also use found objects from nature such as seedpods, leaves and feathers. I love the fact that most of the sterling silver I use is re-milled here in Australia, making it a more environmentally aware choice.
I have long been inspired by nature and you'll find a bit of that in almost everything I do.
