Tanja von Behrens
Contemporary Australian Jewellery Designer / Maker
Born and raised in Canberra, Tanja has lived in NSW, the NT and SA. She completed her studies in Silversmithing and Jewellery Design in Tasmania, and shares a studio space at Salamanca Arts Centre with two other early-career Jewellers.
For Tanja, jewellery making is a process of design, problem solving and troubleshooting. She is deeply fascinated with the meaning and value that people attach to the jewellery and objects they wear, and loves to create pieces that can help someone tell their own personal story. Her landscape-based works are designed to capture the beauty of precious places.
