Intro
An overview of Australian jeweller with the main focus on her new series Mygration. Laura Deakin enjoys working on specific series, which focus intensively on a specific theme. She often plays with concepts of assumed and expected function, while juxtaposing modern and classic materials, such as pearls with resin or sterling silver with watercolor paint.

Artist list

Laura Deakin
One series entitled My Press refers to our daily consumption of print media. Tiles of polyester resin make up each necklace using the extracted print from one single day, each telling a unique story. By pressing each image from the daily newspaper into polyester resin, Deakin preserves our moments.

Her new work, Mygration, asks questions about what it means to leave a familiar place and move to a foreign one, and what it is like be a minority or why our memories of home flavour our experience of a new place. This body of work explores notions behind human migration and the connections we all have to it. Here Deakin again uses the necklace as a canvas to exhibit wonderful surreal landscapes.


Laura Deakin, 1979, Australia, lives and works in Melbourne. She made her BFA at Monash University by Dr. Marian Hosking. In 2004 she moved to Munich to complete her post-graduate Master studies at Akademie der Bildenden Künste under Prof. Otto Künzli. She has received several international awards, grants and stipends and her work can be seen in permanent collections at Die Neue Sammlung, Munich and Galerie Marzee, Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
