Kookaburra Gems – Heidi Atkins

Heidi Atkins is a redundant geologist who turned her hobby into a business. Specialising in lapidary, cutting and polishing gemstones and silversmithing jewellery pieces.  

Using an array of Australian stones, which are fossicked and sourced from other Australian lapidary suppliers, miners and gem shows. Silver is mostly sourced from Sydney suppliers, with some American gold pieces also available. 

“Inspiration for my work is mostly from nature which is seen within my work from flowers, leaves and animal details used frequently. We will have different gemstone earrings, pendants, rings and bracelets all for sale at the Hunter Valley Art Fair, along with our popular pet rocks and kids stones.

If you are into lapidary or a fellow jeweller, we will have a selection of hand cut slabs and cabochons. Also being in healthcare we will have a range of our handmade, washable face masks, which are important in current covid circumstances and are re-usable, which is better for the environment.”
