The Devil's In The Detail: An Exhibition by William Llewellyn Griffiths

Deeply inspired by a trip to Italy in 2022, William Llewellyn Griffiths presents 'The Devil's In The Detail', a new series of couture designs drawing upon the enduring allure of medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Gothic architecture and art.

Forging an alchemy between these inspirations, William utilises traditional craftsmanship, artisanal techniques and modern innovation to create jewellery that channels monarchs, myths, and romantic legends. These pieces are overtly theatrical yet covertly functional, with mechanical components, hidden compartments, and a manipulation of proportions that mediate narrative and nostalgia.

Handmade right here in Melbourne and exclusive to Pieces of Eight Gallery, make sure you visit us in the Royal Arcade to try on these incredible statement pieces. Featuring a variety of coloured gemstones such as citrine, garnet, peridot, topaz and sapphires, these bold cocktail rings and intricate earrings and pendants will draw you in for a closer look, as they beg you to examine their finer details.

The Devil's in the Detail is showing until June 11, 2023.
