Bernard Doherty Jewellery
One of Australia’s leading artisans in plique-a-jour enamel, a process that is the hallmark of Art Nouveau jewellery, Bernard Doherty has exhibited all over the world. Based in Gippsland, Victoria, Bernard is largely inspired by nature; his signature pieces are dragonflies & butterflies, crafted using this demanding, painstaking & extraordinarily beautiful technique. The enamel is applied upon an intricate metalwork skeleton, requiring superior craftsmanship, time & skill. When rotated through the light, the rich colours of Bernard’s masterpieces take on different shades, hues & tones, bringing his realistic designs alive.
Bernard is a member of the Gold & Silversmiths Guild of Australia.
