COSMIC ARTIFACT is an ongoing collection of handmade jewels and one-of-a-kind custom pieces, crafted and curated in Naarm // Melbourne by Grace Griffin.
Growing up in Australia between the punk streets of 90's Newtown (Sydney), and the dusty rocks of South-West Queensland, there was an abundance of mystery and intrigue beyond each faded purple horizon... Travelling across the globes boundless plains since a tender age, Grace has collected the inspirations and street trinkets that have become Cosmic Artifact's beckoning glory.
Beyond the delirious clock of high-fashion, Cosmic Artifact aims to provoke a more sustainable approach to the design process by remaining non-seasonal. Each piece is made-to-order in-house, with a realistic turn around. Offering diversity in design for all beings, the Signature Collection is ever evolving, with each piece remaining relevant in all aspects of time and space.
Grace Griffin graduated from RMIT University, Melbourne, with a Bachelor of Design (Fashion) Honours in 2007.
In 2008, Grace commenced a fashion internship in Antwerp, Belgium, with iconic design house Ann Demeulemeester. Grace was the first Australian to be employed with the company in 2009, working fulltime at the house, and often assisting Demeulemeester, until mid 2013.
During 2014, Grace accompanied her father, Rod Griffin, at his Opal mine in South-West Queensland. Growing up surrounded by jewels, gems and minerals, fossils, antiques and collectables, a creative path in jewellery design and creation was the next calling....
In 2015 Cosmic Artifact was born from the inviting realms of endless roads, and deserts that disappear into the future....
