'Golden Age' is an exhibition of fine jewellery, by Kate Rohde inspired by the natural world and Rococo.
Kate Rohde's collection distils the influence of curvaceous gilded Rococo decoration and the vast natural world of plants, animals and minerals into the small scale of wearable jewellery pieces. Including rings, necklaces and bracelets, the pieces will incorporate asymmetric forms drawing on Rococo decorative arts and a curious menagerie of animal and plant motifs inspired by scenes from natural history engravings of the same era. This is the first collection of fine jewellery by this highly regarded visual artist and resin jeweller and is exclusive to Pieces of Eight.
Part of the 2015 Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program (VAMFF).
