    My recent works are created with thin brass sheet, which I fold and paint in order to achieve a variety of forms. The designs consider the space surrounding jewellery, how the pieces will touch and connect with places, people, things and ideas.

    Since completing her Associateship at Adelaide’s JamFactory in the Metal Design Studio in 2010, Peta Kruger has remained at the JamFactory to become an independent studio hirer, producing two solo exhibitions Start from Scratch for the JamFactory Gallery space and This Fool's Gold for Pieces of Eight Gallery. In 2011 she was awarded an Australia Council for the Arts Jump Mentorship grant and funding from the Ian Potter Foundation to undertake a mentorship with contemporary jeweller Karl Fritsch in Germany and New Zealand, and more recently commissioned by Australia Council for the Arts to design the Laureate Award and Laureate Medal, presented to artist Tracey Moffatt and curator Juliana Engberg at the Museum of Contemporary Art in 2013. Her work was featured in the Australian touring exhibition and publication Designing Craft/Crafting Design: 40 Years of JamFactory in 2013.
