Macey Wehner is an up-and-coming Tyabb-based jewellery designer. Though trained in urban Melbourne, Macey creates stunning silver pieces inspired by the natural environment of Frankston and the Peninsula.

Where did your passion for design begin?

Being creative has always been a passion of mine. As I grew older and explored different hands-on classes during my school years, it became apparent that my strengths and skills lay somewhere in the design field. I’ve always enjoyed creating things that are a little left of centre, controversial, and strange.

Do you see a difference between city style and Peninsula style?

To me, the Peninsula holds an organic element which is captured in art, landscapes, architecture and, of course, jewellery. ‘Simplicity’, ‘coarse’, ‘edgy’, ‘texture’ and ‘natural’ are a few words I would use to describe Peninsula jewellery. Melbourne holds pieces with sleek lines, thickness, angles and boldness, much like the environment in which they’re created, but what city style is to me could be interpreted completely differently by someone else.

Why do you love where you live and how does it inspire your work?

Growing up on the Peninsula has been a large influence on my jewellery making. Going to local markets such as Frankston, Mornington and Rosebud was a family outing I always looked forward to. Now this has come full circle and I get to enjoy it as a stall-holder. The soft edge of a wave hitting the shore, the unevenness of life, the rawness of emotions, and the boldness in a personality can all be seen and experienced in my jewellery and how I design my pieces. To some this may be hard to understand, but I try to put a little piece of myself and my environment in every jewellery piece I make.
