Jed of Jedeye Mindtank is an ethical silversmith in love with the beauty of imperfection. The playful nature of spontaneity in conjunction with pushing the boundaries of what is stereotypically seen as beautiful plays an endearing role in what makes her work so unique.
The desire to encapsulate the essence of raw human experience and transform the beauty of imperfect nature into one of a kind pieces of wearable art is the driving force behind Jed’s body of work. Her 7 years of studying Visual Art and Design at ACU and Silversmithing and Object Design at Melbourne Polytechnic have implemented a conjunction of conceptual and aesthetic ideals that invite you to dip your fingers into a curiously strange world of dribbly, blingy bliss.
Each one of a kind Jedeye Mindtank piece is a token of embodiment to the beauty of raw human form and experience. By deconstructing our socially conditioned ideals of perfection, we are left with an open platform to feel comfortable in our imperfections, and wear them with pride as we shimmer like a raw little jelly bean upon the surface of a new world.
Every one of a kind piece is birthed deep in the recesses of Jed’s subconscious mind, then delicately dribbles its way down and out of the hands she is so grateful for. They continue on their journey of being brought to life by every ounce of the process being lovingly hand carved through the art of lost wax. They are finally cast in ethically sourced precious metal and ready to frolic off on their next adventure to dance under the moonlight, adorned upon the boddess of an incredible creature, such as yourself.
Ethical sourcing and sustainable production play a substantial role in Jed’s making process and morals. From chemical free pickle, flux and eco friendly vegan production products, to up cycled gemstones and metal, and recycled packaging.
Jed believes in the importance of a visible supply chain, supporting artisanal miners and small scale gem cutters, and is passionate about attaining as many materials from this growing community of ethical minded small businesses as possible, and encourages you to develop your own understanding as to why this process is so important.
