Melbourne jeweller / gallerist / retailer Melanie Katsalidis is one hell of an overachiever. After successfully re-launching her jewellery / object gallery Pieces of Eight in the CBD earlier this year, she already has a new retail concept to share – say hello to Edition X!

Edition X opened just last week, and is located in the former home of Pieces of Eight – a fantastic deco warehouse-style building in Fitzroy North.  The range primarily consists of jewellery and handcrafted objects, with one key point of difference – everything here has been created in a limited edition, specifically for Edition X.  So you can be sure you won’t spot any of the Edition X collection anywhere else!  AMAZINGLY, however, the range has also been thoughtfully curated with pricepoint in mind – the vast majority of work is under $300 which is incredible value for unique, handcrafted work by some of Melbourne’s best known creatives.

Edition X also deserves a pat on the back for their seriously excellent website.  It is awesome.  The entire range is photographed beautifully and everything can be bought online.  ALL online shops should look this hot.
