Marcia Swaby is a casual academic, Masters graduate and an emerging designer working primarily in jewellery and objects. With an interest in historic objects and their inherent communication, she translates her interpretations through multimodal materials. Processes for her most recent works include lost wax casting, chasing metal, woodturning, etching and experimenting with clay. As a tactile means of connecting with obscured histories, the essence of her work attempts to re-join fragments of the past into the present. She is currently exploring traditional themes of jewellery making through digital technologies.
