Olivia Dryden



Taxidery Artist

artist website

Earrings, necklaces, bracelets and bangles are the medium Olivia uses to explore her work as a jeweller and taxidermy artist.

What might seem gruesome, creepy or downright weird to many of us are the very things that inspire Olivia. Whether it’s crab claws, bones, vertebrae, skulls, seahorses Olivia sculpts these fragments of death using precious metals, flowers, pearls and gemstones and asks you to see the natural beauty that she sees.

Olivia’s jewellery is particularly unique and is described as a ‘modern take on taxidermy jewellery’ consisting of three unique ranges: Botanical, Oceanic and Curios.

She completed a Bachelor Degree in Visual Arts and Design in 2014, majoring in Jewellery and joined the Collective in 2023.



There’s so much to look at, we suggest you come and browse. If you just can’t choose between the 2 or 3 (or more) items you simply have to have, why not take a moment to sit down and relax, and have lunch or coffee at one of the cafes just next to our gallery. And when you come back in, you’ll know exactly which work of art is right for you.

Come and find us in Gay's Arcade, inside Adelaide Arcade in Rundle Mall, Adeaide. We’d love to see you.
