Hi and welcome to my store, I am Eran Naylor and I am an Australian goldsmith and designer, originally from England. I began making jewellery about 25 years ago and simply never stopped. I was hooked and even today I find it hard to stop. I am mainly self taught from a desire to create. I design and hand make my collections from my workshops on Melbourne. I also teach classes at gasworks arts park in Albert park, have an online Jewellery school and also teach by private tuition and zoom. Wax work is more my specialty and that is mainly what I teach. I love teaching, it keeps me surrounded by creative thinkers and that in itself gives back to me as much as I help others. So it’s a win win situation that keeps the creative spirit alive.
My inspirations for my collections come first and foremost from designs and patterns from the old Mesopotamian regions, India and South America. In my late twenties I became fascinated by Egyptology and that is where my love of adornment really flourished. I like to try to transfer the beauty of older times to bold, classic pieces that can be worn or used with ease today. I try to embody in my work a beauty and calm that adorns the wearer and has a bohemian feel and look about it, recreating feeling and senses into real pieces that can be worn like talismans every day. Using materials, colours and often experimenting with new techniques I try to create pieces that make the senses flow.
All of my stones are hand picked not always so much for their value as for their aesthetic beauty and how they fit into the design.
I hope you like my pieces and thank you again for visiting my store. It really is a show place of my work, designs and imagination that I somehow manage to bring to life and it is a pleasure to share it with you.
You are welcome to visit my showrooms or to come and see me about creating a bespoke creation from your imagination. Just e mail me to make appointment.
