Gilli Pepper Jewellery is born of a love of working with metal to create unique personal treasures. I am inspired by music, symbolism, poetry, and all things that make our lives richer and more connected. I believe jewellery is much more than just adornment, it is a powerful method of self-expression.
I am traditionally trained jeweller of over 25 years, having worked for and with some of the best jewellers in the country.
Each of my ranges explores themes of love, loss, illness and death, in a way that is meant to be both contemplative and at times irreverent, and can be viewed as an escape into a beautiful fantasy world of dream-like symbolism, an attempt to create meaning in a meaningless world.
The commission pieces are directed by the customer, and each creation tells a tale. Working closely with each client I want every piece made in the studio to be infused with elements of client's personal story, creating a treasure that will become an heirloom.
My studio is based at King St Metalsmiths 522 King St Newtown. We are open Tuesday to Saturday 10 til 5, and appointments can be made outside of these hours to view the ranges and discuss ideas for commission work.
If you can’t make it to Sydney, don’t fret, we can also work easily online, (via email, Skype, FB Messenger or any other communication software that takes your fancy) exchanging ideas, sketches and renderings before manufacture is started.
