Artist in Focus
Swan Valley artist Bethamy Linton is a fourth generation West Australian silversmith. Bethamy’s interest in jewellery and metal object design began as a child during hours spent in the Linton family workshops with her grandfather, father and uncle. At 16 Bethamy started formally working with her father making silver flatware and restoring antiques, later seeking an apprenticeship in fine jewellery. More recently Bethamy has participated in exhibitions in Perth, Adelaide and Sydney.
