About - Dr Karin Beaumont

I began making jewellery inspired by the beauty of microscopic life I saw while undertaking my PhD in Antarctica. I realised as a scientist that I was privileged to view these unique forms and wanted to share the beauty and importance of these creatures with others.

Over the past twenty years I have continued to design and make jewellery, influenced by my experiences and travels in life: as an Antarctic marine scientist and voyage leader, as a tour guide in lutruwita / Tasmania, and on personal adventures exploring the deserts and southern coast of mainland Australia by campervan.

While these places may seem worlds apart, I am drawn to similarities in the structure of life, and repetition of pattern, be it on land or in the sea.

I enjoy working with metal to create jewellery I like to wear that has personal meaning. Feedback and stories from those who purchase, wear or gift my jewellery motivates and inspires me to continue to experiment and create, fostering connections between people and our natural world.

Acknowledgement of Country
I live and create on the land of the palawa people.

I acknowledge them as the traditional owners and ongoing custodians of lutruwita (Tasmania) and respect their continuing history of creating and making on this land for tens of thousands of years.

I recognise that first nations people across Australia never ceded sovereignty, and I respect their connections to land, sea and community.
