Pieces of Eight is a jewellery and object gallery located on Russel Place just down the road from Sarti and Gin Palace. With its big, gold garlands hanging from the circular, compass-like entry, it's pretty hard to miss.
The space, designed by renowned architect Nonda Katsalidis, is grander and a lot larger than the company's previous studio and gallery in North Fitzroy – the gallery showcases the work of established and emerging artists and silversmiths, housing at total of 52 makers in total. The works are exclusive to the gallery in Victoria, with both Australian and international artists on display.
Throughout the year Pieces of Eight also presents an exhibition program with guest curators, workshops, online blogs, interviews and more.
