Aphra Cheesman‘s posts:
I am a contemporary jeweller currently based in Melbourne. My practice is playful and observant, exploring the in-between and overlooked moments of everyday life. I completed a BA Fine Art (Gold and Silversmithing) at RMIT in 2018 and have since been selected for Fresh! at Craft Victoria and the Marzee International Graduate Show.
Through the HANDSHAKE programme, with Lisa Walker as a mentor, I hope to develop my practice, exploring new and different ways of thinking and making. As a New Zealander living in Melbourne, I’m also looking forward to being more involved in the New Zealand contemporary jewellery community
