Description

Sultana's work relies heavily on experimentation, both in terms of design and the traditional techniques of jewellery making. Sultana likes to explore ideas as to what constitutes preciousness in jewellery and ornamentation, and how best to convey the symbolism and emotional content in jewellery, which she finds the most personal and enduring aspect of all arts and crafts.

Silver has always been Sultana's preferred material but she uses various 'found objects' and plays with diverse materials if she to, to convey and idea. Sultana is open to new technologies and materials in her quest to create an ideal object and is inspired by the powerful and immensely varied work of contemporary jewellers today.

Indian art and jewellery has a tradition of rich history and customs, and the mingling of two cultures – the Hindu and the Islamic – has given Sultana a very broad perspective to work from.

Sultana works from a small studio is her garden, which she calls her sanctum sanctorum, where time stops and the many hours she spends tending to it reward her with all the materials and inspiration to create her work.

Aspects stocks a range of Sultana's one-off pieces.

Made in Western Australia.
