CAVE by Melbourne Metal Collective

Organised by jewellers, for jewellers, the Melbourne Metal Collective was launched in 2011. The collective is comprised of seven local designers – Henson, Young Hunting, Estelle Dévé, Hamish Munro and new to the MMC in 2012 – O.T.T by Lia T, Alexandra Blak and Maripossa.

All seven designers have developed their very own strong identities, and are carried by leading boutiques in Australia and abroad. While their aesthetics are very different (some work with neon latex, others with Perspex, others with silver and gold) there is somehow a harmony of their personal aesthetics when observing their work as a collective.

The designer’s most recent works are currently featured in a temporary space in Melbourne’s timeless Curtin House. For two weeks only, their pop up store: CAVE will be acting as cave of wonders, filled with intriguing jewellery, one-offs and other curiosities which have inspired their collections.

CAVE will be open daily from 12 to 9pm until the 25th of March.

Oh My Word! That leather collar is just calling out to me – I love a good statement neck piece – they help my weird giraffe neck appear more human size :)

I love the way you photograph jewelery. I am always intrigued by the way you set up the shots. Its clear that you have lots of talent and love what you are working with.

@ Tessa – Oh boy I feel terrible – these aren’t my photographs! They were supplied by The MMC at my request. They are great photographs though!
