Carrie Moore's Profile
I have always loved jewellery and have had a fascination for precious and semi-precious gemstones since I was child. I remember collecting rocks and waiting for them to reveal their hidden beauty as they came out of the lapidary tumbler in my Dads workshop.
Opal is a particular passion of mine and I cut my own freeform solid opals for use in my jewellery designs. I am loathe to grind away any of the beautiful fire so I leave most of my opal pieces in free-form shape. This lends itself to simple designs or to more intricate wire-woven techniques and metal smithing. I only use precious metals, in the form of high quality sterling silver wire & 14kt gold-filled wire from a reputable supplier to the jewellery trade - for wire-weaving & sterling silver & solid karat gold for metal work & bails, caps, rings & earring fittings...
