About Shalini Austin
I am a self taught metalsmith. It started as a hobby in 2008, making wire jewellery and polishing rocks to sell at local craft shows and via my website. As I progressed on my creative journey I learnt to appreciate sheet metal, especially copper. So it is only natural that my work is now taking a new path in coppersmithing. Since 2014 I have been working mainly with sheet copper, crafting a decorative and functional range of copper jewellery, home-ware and sculptures. I love working with sheet metal and creating interesting 3D forms and shapes, often using nothing more than a simple hammer to create textures.
