Barbara Heath: Jeweller to the Lost

Front Cover
Queensland Art Gallery, 2005 - Jewelers - 64 pages
For more than 30 years, contemporary Australian jeweller and designer Barbara Heath has explored the complex connections between maker and wearer. Since 1990, Heath has assisted many clients on a journey to locate jewels that speak to them, leading her to assume the epithet 'Jeweller to the Lost'. Heath's talents find expression not just in wearables but also in jewellery 'off the body' - small sculptural objects, love tokens and large-scale installations. Richly illustrated, Barbara Heath: Jeweller to the Lost explores the artist's distinctive lexicon of icons, jewellery inspired by architectural devices and forms imbued with personal narratives. It features images of Heath's life and work, incorporates excerpts from her journals and provides a unique insight into her approach to creating contemporary jewellery.
