Regine Schwarzer combines both silver and gold with unusual stones to create elegant jewellery with a distinctive style. Regine says of her work; “Visual uniqueness to me gives value to the common materials overlooked or disregarded and it is this which has long fascinated me. The minerals on which I base the design and construction of my work are sourced from the Australian outback and from collectors exhibitions, the raw materials are a rich inspiration. Translating and magnifying such treasure is a revelation and source of inspiration.” Clean lines and exotic patterns are matched with exquisite craftsmanship producing unique pieces with a timeless quality.
Born in Hanau, Germany, Regine completed her goldsmith and jewellery apprenticeship at the Staatliche Zeichenkademie, Hanau. She worked as a goldsmith and completed a silversmithing course while exhibiting in many cities throughout Germany. Regine moved to Adelaide in 1993 where she established a private workshop. Since then, she has exhibited in many galleries around Australia as well as the Tresors: 5th International Fine Art and Antiques for Asia, Singapore with Beaver Galleries.
