To think a single grain of sand can seed the most lustrous of gems, it is truly an organic marvel. The pearl is the only gem produced by a living organism and in FRESHLY SHUCKED, Pieces of Eight pays homage to this much-loved symbol of status and luxury.
As part of this inaugural survey of pearls in contemporary jewellery making, Pieces of Eight presents a remarkable collection of pieces from artists both local and international. From the round to the baroque, white, black and coloured, FRESHLY SHUCKED celebrates pearls in all their natural wonder.
