Heyyy I hope my interview with Melanie Katsalidis on Friday sparked some interest… her gallery in Fitzroy North is such a treasure-trove of exquisite finds… I’m not usually a fancy jewellery girl, but there really is something special about Pieces of Eight.

If you need another reason to visit, Pieces of Eight are launching a new window exhibition this Tuesday (June 24th) entitled ‘My Pet Rock‘. An eclectic, international group of jewellery and object makers exhibit works that explore ideas of sentimentality in relation to material things… including concepts of what makes something precious, and what invokes attachment to personal items. The exhibition will run until July 19.

‘My Pet Rock’ is the first of many exhibitions at Pieces of Eight which will showcase the work of international artists alongside local talent – contributers from as far as Canada, the UK and Argentina are represented in this show.
