Kirsten Haydon is a New Zealand-born, Melbourne based artist specialising in enameling processes for constructed jewellery, her practice is inspired by a 2004 trip to Antarctica as the first jeweller to take part in the Artists to Antarctica Programme. She explores this experience through research of the continent’s history and the experience of past visitors through the notion of the souvenir. Kirsten was the recipient of the Lynne Kosky Jewellery Award, Craft Awards in 2017.
