noble frank Sterling Silver jewellery is handcrafted in my home studio, near Wudinna on the Eyre Peninsula, South Australia.
My creative journey began in graphic design, but a desire for more freedom in my work led me to develop a range of jewellery featuring laser cut timber and acrylic components. Quickly frustrated by the limitations of the laser cut materials, in 2019 I made the decision to learn silversmithing in order to allow a greater range of creative expression in my work. I love working with organic shapes and textures to create truly original and unique pieces.
A family holiday to Coober Pedy in 2020 sparked an interest in Opal. Interest quickly turned into obsession and you will now find these unique gems throughout my range, along with touches of 9ct Yellow and Rose Gold as I love the contrast of mixing metals.
I am often asked how I came up with the name noble frank - which originates from my maiden name noble, and middle name Francis (frank). The meaning behind both words express my creative direction perfectly.
noble / impressive, imposing in appearance
frank / unrestrained, free, bold, uninhibited
