Jewellery by Melbourne designer/maker Hamish Munro

Hamish’s ‘man-cave’ / studio in Melbourne’s CBD!

What the hell, its another post about the Munro family!  Ha! After posting about Phoebe Munro’s fabulous shop ‘After’ this morning, I feel compelled to follow up with a little post about her younger brother Hamish!

Hamish Munro is just 22, and after studying sculpture at the VCA, launched his own range of jewellery… which is not that uncommon I guess… except that it was snapped up almost IMMEDIATELY by retailers including Fat, Alpha60 and Order and Progress.   I am not sure how many other fine arts graduates have this level of business nous!  These days Hamish sells mainly through Phoebe’s shop, and at Chiodo, and also takes visitors by appointment at his studio in the CBD.

I REALLY LOVE THE ROPE PIECES A LOT!  Whilst the pics above are quite neutral in tone, Hamish is now hand-dying the ropes in fantastic muted coral and yellow and greens… very very cool!  AND great to see pieces that can be worn by boys and girls alike!  I really wish I had a pic of this amazing bracelet in Phoebe’s shop with coral / cream alternating coil, which produces a ‘stripe’ effect.  WHY did I not photograph it at the time!?

ANYWAY Mr Munro is on the hunt for some new retailers and so if you have a shop which stocks excellent things like this I think you should email him asap, before Colette in Paris cottons on and commissions some limited edition series and then before you know it Janelle Monae will be wearing one at the Grammys or something and you will have totally missed the boat. :)

Don’t day I didn’t warn you.
