An exclusive invitation to our jewellery gallery
In our last newsletter we forecast the opening of our gallery – a showcase of the artistic talent and artisan skills of our workshop team.
We are delighted to announce that the gallery will open on Monday 9 December. We extend a welcome to all our loyal clients to visit in the week following (with three evening opportunities) to celebrate this important milestone.
The gallery will showcase a wondrous display of very special blue gemstones
The themes of our first exhibition revolve around the colour blue and ‘eclipse’. We featured blue gemstones in our ‘Gemmology Corner’ article in our last newsletter (click here to read the article) – the gallery will showcase a wondrous display of very special blue gemstones.
Visitors in our opening week will have the opportunity of open access to our studio workshop
A few years ago, we staged an ‘in-house’ competition to judge which staff member could design the best piece of jewellery based on the concept of an eclipse. We could never decide whose work was the best – so we resolved to manufacture each design to let others judge. Since then, Kylie and Yuki have added to the collection by contributing their own designs. Visitors in our opening week will have the opportunity of open access to our studio workshop – a chance to see how jewellery is made by hand and to talk to our talented jewellers. Naturally the pieces entered in the Australasian Jewellery Design Awards will be on show. Interestingly, Eleanor’s entry gives a sneak preview of the next theme that will be featured at our gallery – ‘Flora’.
We urge you to put aside a half hour in the week beginning Monday 9 December. Although we see your visits as an informal drop-in, if you did wish to discuss any jewellery matters during your visit, it might be wise to ring on 03 9650 3830 to give us a little notice. For those who find it difficult to fit their tour into normal work-day times, we intend to extend our opening hours to 7:00pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (11th to 13th of December).
