About Shalini Austin

I am a self taught metalsmith and I make Copper Things. It started as a hobby in 2008, making wire jewellery. 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. In recent years 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. Recently I have also started enamelling, which has proven very popular with jewellery customers

HEARTS and FLOWERS 06

Gorgeous Orange Enamelled Pendant HEARTS and FLOWERS 06 is a colourful necklace with flowers and petals scattered across the heart.

The Hearts and Flowers series of pendants evolved from The Corsage series of brooches when I played with a few ideas on a piece of heavy gauge sheet copper left over from another project. I loved the results I got on the first brooch and made several more brooches.

Someone contacted me and asked if I could make a pendant to match the Corsage Brooch and this series is the result.

These pieces have been layered and fired several times to achieve the final look.
