THE LINE OF SUN comes from Melbourne creative Alice Tsakirakis.
Alice began experimenting with making jewellery as a way to explore a hands on craft to break from her day job as a Graphic Designer. She started teaching herself the Lost Wax Technique – meaning each piece is first carved from wax by hand, and then cast in precious metals. Immediately obsessed with the process, she learnt more about metal working and Cast in Place stone setting – a process whereby stones are placed directly into the wax and then cast in the metal. It is a risky process which can end up with stones trapped under the metal or lost, but it is the unpredictable nature of the process that means each piece is truly one of a kind.
The focus of her jewellery is in celebrating the beautiful imperfections of this process, and creating unique pieces that will become future heirlooms.
