Albert Tse has always had a fascination in making things, from a hot dog bean bag in year 8 art class to a glass blowing workshop in Manly many years later. So when he was looking at a pottery class in mid 2013 and the classes filled up, he ended up in a Jewellery course and felt that this was what was missing in life. The stars aligned and six weeks later he left his career in logistics and was in Florence studying at one of the best contemporary jewellery schools – Alchimia. There he was taught both the traditional jewellery making techniques and also contemporary design. It was a mixture of both the old and the new, something that he has taken on board to develop his own unique style – that is a modern take on the traditional.
