Oksana is an emerging designer and manufacturer of custom made jewellery in Adelaide.
Oksana is developing and enhancing her skills in jewellery manufacture and design. This is done through an Internship with one of Australia’s finest and respected International Silver and Goldsmiths, Master Craftsman Jacques Fabian.
“Jacques’ extensive wealth of knowledge, guidance and advice has helped me to develop my skills in the art of jewellery making,” Oksana said. “He has taught me hand and stone setting skills and regularly advises me on how to enhance my designs and drawings.”
Recently Oksana found a variety of old tools and equipment that belonged to her late father. “Jacques is teaching me how to restore these items and to use them to make my own unique tools”, she stated.
Oksana previously worked as a communications officer and events coordinator in a variety of fields and has completed a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Communication Studies at the University of South Australia.
Having always had an interest in art and design, Oksana has been eager to use her hand skills to create something new and exciting. She is now pursuing this passion by creating bespoke jewellery items.
Her many different designs are in the form of earrings, pendants, rings and cuffs. From her passions, Oksana develops, hand fabricates and sets the gems and stones in her own pieces.
Oksana has recently started her own product – Jewellery by Oksana – focussing on developing custom made jewellery designed to client specifications and needs. Jewellery by Oksana is 100% hand fabricated here in Australia.
