Jewellery by Belinda Newick
Belinda Newick is a studio-based jeweller and metalsmith whose work explores cultural hybridity and diversity, as well as the connections between people and place.

She combines hand-crafted traditional techniques and computer engraving processes. Her jewellery capture the emotions, imprints and memories of her life journey through the subtle surface techniques applied to her work. Born in Perth, Belinda completed her Bachelor of Arts in Jewellery and 3D Design/Sculpture at Curtin University of Technology, Perth, in 1995. Belinda has been the recipient of two international grants, with an AsiaLink Residency; Sri Lanka 2004 and another in Kerala, India 2001.
