About the Maker: Emma Cuppleditch is an emerging contemporary jeweller and visual artist from Adelaide, Australia. Cuppleditch creates items of jewellery which range from delicate and curious to bold and other worldly. Through experimenting with natural/unnatural and lost/found, Cuppleditch creates unique pieces of wearable art which touch on themes of memory, sentiment, imagination and whimsy.
In 2012 she established her design label ELC Studio which later became a key feature of her former boutique retail and gallery space, Small World. She has since designed jewellery for the Adelaide Fashion Festival’s Emerging Designer Showcase in collaboration with local design label Willow & Grace and currently sells her jewellery at the JamFactory, The Fleurieu Arthouse, Zu Design and Urban Cow Studio.
Cuppleditch recently completed a Bachelor of Contemporary Art at the University of South Australia and is currently working as an Associate Jeweller at JamFactory Craft & Design.
