Artist list

Djurdjica Kesic
In the Nomad series, jeweller Djurdjica Kesic develops her ongoing interest in home, place and migration. For Kesic, the house becomes a symbol of something that evokes a sense of place and stability. More specifically these ideas are explored in relation to the migrant experience that is in many ways shaped by transition and movement. The two, house and migration, appear to be in a dichotomy, of something fixed and something in motion. ‘Nomad’ explores these ideas through a series of neckpieces made from an armful of preloved belongings.
 
Djurdjica Kesic completed a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Interior Design at RMIT University Melbourne in 1999 and has taught there for several years. A strong drive to create tangible objects has seen her develop a passion for jewellery, and in 2007 she completed an Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology and Metalsmithing (Jewellery), Box Hill Institute. The same year saw her selected and exhibited as part of the Filippo Raphael Fresh Award at Craft Victoria where she was a finalist.
