michael quinn

Michael Quinn graduated from the Bachelor of Design - Jewellery Design course at the University of South Australia in 1995. He has subsequently been self-employed as a designer/maker, specilaising in the design & manufacture of contemporary jewellery.

Michael's designs are greatly influenced by his choices of materials. In particular the working properties of aluminium & the aluminium anodising procedure allow him to experiment with colour & form while retaining a lightness suitable for contemporary jewellery. Besides the ability to use a varied range of vibrant colours in his work, Michael enjoys utilising aluminium because of its malleable quality & the cold joining challenges it offers, i.e - rivets, tension settings, taps & dies.

As a designer, Michael doesn't spend agreat deal of time putting pen to paper to create a concept. He would rather let the experimentation of various techniques lead him to a concept, of which is then refined into a complete product.
