Emma Bugg is a jewellery practitioner and artist with a studio practice driven by curiosity and material alchemy.  Her work explores the way jewellery can connect people to memories and place, going outside the boundaries of materials traditionally associated with jewellery and challenging perceptions of value.

A former artist in residence with Arts Tasmania's Connected studio program, Emma continues to investigate emergent technologies, considering innovative ways that data and codes can be incorporated into jewellery.

Emma and three other Tasmanian artists opened State of Flux Workshop in Salamanca in September 2020.
