This is the piece I made for Egetal's Fifteen Celebrations. This is what they wrote about it Cosmic wonders pierce the infinite dark of an Australian night sky as rivers vein great expanses of earth and rock in Sarah Heyward’s powerful boulder opal, quartz, 18ct yellow gold and silk necklace. This stirring song to the antipodes is now available for viewing and purchase in the gallery as part of our ‘Fifteen’ exhibition.
I am a contemporary jeweller living and working in Melbourne. I acknowledge the Boon Wurrung and Bunurong people as the traditional owners of the land on which I live and work; I pay respects to the traditional elders of the past, present and emerging and their spiritual connection to country.

My work is an exploration of the interplay between materials as an artistic medium and how they are represented in the modern world. I am fascinated with representations of earthly and galactic landscapes. Our motivations to explore the universe may be a to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. We look up to look back at ourselves.
