Carmel Fasolo graduated from WASASM (TAFE) in 2003 with an advanced diploma in jewellery design and production and has spent the last seven years working from her small studio at home.
Carmel's work is inspired by elements in the natural world, organic forms, textures and playful shapes. She has explored elements of plant life, flowers, pods, bark, mosses, pebbles and marine life with themes of repetition, layering and texture.
A traditional material like silver allows Carmel to discover and manipulate the material by applying different textures and finishes using traditional techniques such as forging, doming, hammer texturing and patination.
Colour, textiles and gemstones as well as non-traditional materials like paper, buttons and ribbon are also of great interest to her and she enjoys how they influence her pieces and working process.
