Growing up in the Huon Valley, Jewellery making and design has always been a great passion of Emilys. You could say that this interest started at an early age, with Emily making and selling beaded jewellery from the age of 12. She begun her career after high school working retail in a Jewellery store until she begun an apprenticeship in 2012 in Jewellery Manufacture.
Throughout her training and years on the bench, Emily has learnt many new and old manufacturing techniques, priding herself on making silver and gold pieces completely from scratch.
She is currently studying Gemmology in order to expand her knowledge and satisfy her great interest in the world of gemstones.
In 2021, Emily made the leap to continue her Jewellery career on her own through her business, Emmire Jewellery.
Finesse and flow are two very important factors Emily considers when designing a piece. Her inspiration is in part drawn from her love and appreciation of antique jewellery, particularly Art Nouveau and Celtic pieces. She is further inspired by the natural wonders that our Earth produces, with amazing landscapes and flora designs seen in her work.
Gemstones are a great curiosity and love of Emily’s, with the majority of her work featuring an array of natural gems to intrigue and delight.
With a strong connection to Tasmanian, Emily enjoys working with gems and designs that showcase her home island state, although she often cannot resist the beauty of so many other gemstones from around the world.
