Bethamy Linton

A fourth generation Western Australian silversmith, Bethamy Linton’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. Aged 16 Bethamy started formally working with her father making silver flatware and restoring antiques, later seeking apprenticeships, mentorships and training in fine jewellery, art and object design. She taught in the Advanced Diploma course at the North Metropolitan TAFE from 2011 to 2017 whilst maintaining a busy studio practice in the Swan Valley. She has exhibited widely and her works are held in the numerous private collections as well as The National Gallery of Australia, The Powerhouse Museum, City of Swan, and recently acquired by the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
