I'm Emma Kidson, an Aussie jeweller, lover of Japanese style and total gemstone obsessive.
I have been running my own jewellery practice for eleven years, studying a Bachelor of Arts Jewellery at Charles Sturt University, graduating with distinction in 2007 and launching Kidson Jewellery in 2008.
My focus is on quality craftsmanship and materials. I handcraft every piece in my Wagga Wagga studio. Where possible, I source my metals from recycled resources to lessen the impact of my practice on the environment.
I create my own collection of work inspired by Japanese aesthetic, Australian flora and succulent gardens. As the granddaughter and daughter of two prolific gardeners, the love of botanical themes and motifs is engrained in my very being.
Bespoke, one-of-a-kind commissions and jewellery remodelling jobs are among my favourite pieces to create. I enjoy working one on one with my clients to create a piece that is unique and special to them personally.
You can often find me at the Old Bus Depot Markets in Kingston Canberra where I sell my retail range labelled "Japonicity" and connect with my awesome Canberra customers.
I'd like to make a shout out to those amazing clients that have powered and inspired the development of my work over the last decade. Without your input, your trust and your custom, I wouldn't be able to do what I do!
Thanks for stopping by my website, Em. xx
