Also a painter for the past 15 years I have worked exclusively as a jeweller, exploring the infinite possibilities of glass, semi-precious stones, and wire to create timeless & unique pieces that will become heirlooms.
Based in Sydney, Australia, I have been making my own glass beads for over 12years, using the ancient technique of lampworking. I use a wide colour palette of Italian glass rods, 23ct gold and silver leaf to create original components. Each of my beads is one off, every design different, and every piece of jewellery truly unique.
Combined with my own beads, I use semi precious beads, such as Queensland boulder opal, turquoise from Arizona, freshwater pearls from Asia, amethyst and carnelian from India and many others from all around the world. I work with 9ct gold, silver, brass and enamelled wire, or high strength, nylon coated stainless steel cable to create my pieces. I am fastidious about the durability, and wearability of my work.
This website was constructed to serve as a showcase of the gallery's current art glass stock, hand made jewellery and forthcoming exhibitions. The gallery was opened in September 2001, and is located in the heart of Melbourne's arts and antiques precinct, at 1082 High Street Armadale.
The Veronica George Gallery has a wonderful collection of art glass and jewellery by well known Australian Artists. There is a range of one-of-a-kind Art Glass to Studio Glass and Collectable's. The city of Melbourne, with its cultural and artistic reputation, provides a wonderful home for the Veronica George Gallery. Prestigious retailers and galleries, antique shops, cafes and restaurants surround the Armadale gallery.
We are open Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5:30pm. We send worldwide, tax free and insured.
