Margaret West (1936-2014) is renowned as one of Australia’s finest contemporary jewellers. Her restrained yet passionate works in stainless steel, stone and marble are thoughtfully conceived, impeccably crafted. Often lyrical and evocative of nature, which West loved, her works are marked by the allusive compression that she explored in her other great passion in later life, writing poetry.
