An intriguing blend of geographic shape and biological forms by jeweller and artist Charles Wyatt. Charles began working in his family’s jewellery shop at the age of 12 where he developed a passion for fine craftsmanship. Moving to Melbourne in 2008 to extend his contemporary practice and went on to complete a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Gold and Silversmithing) at RMIT University where he received the Maggie Fairweather Gold and Silversmithing Award. 

Jewellery and art available from Pieces of Eight Gallery - 28 Russel Place Melbourne.

Visual Artist Kate Rohde recently began making jewellery after collaborating with Romance Was Born on their ‘Renaissance Dinosaur’ collection who we’ve also featured on Designer Melbourne.

Inspired by her ongoing interest in merging elements of natural history across zoology, botany and geology, the jewellery features flowers and crystals sprouting together out of cuffs and stalagmites with hooves, paws, antlers and heads.

Kate Rohde is a visual artist who completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honours) at the Victorian College of the Arts in 2001. Since then she has held several solo exhibitions including a recent exhibition at Pieces of Eight Gallery. Her work is included in a number of public collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, Bendigo Art Gallery and the Art Gallery of South Australia. She is represented by Karen Woodbury Gallery, Melbourne.

Kate’s work is available for purchase through Edition X but be quick, it looks to be vanishing very quickly!
