Brand Spotlight: Melanie Katsalidis

There is a complex art to designing and creating exquisite jewellery. Gemstones, diamonds and precious metals; all jewellery is born from mother nature’s finest handiwork. It’s not surprising then, that it carries a core emotional value too. It is not only the action of buying, receiving or wearing jewellery that injects a particular piece with meaning, jewels are charged with their designers’ experiences and ideals as well.

Melanie Katsalidis is a contemporary jeweller based in Melbourne. Melanie is the founder of Pieces of Eight gallery which she established in 2005. Housed in a custom-built space she designed with her architect father, Nonda Katsalidis, who happens to also be the architect behind Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art and Melbourne’s Eureka Tower, the gallery showcases the collections of carefully selected artists. Exhibitions and events bring new ideas and energy into the space which includes large scale window installations.

Melanie creates highly refined jewellery focusing on simple shapes and geometric structure, bringing these design elements together in contemporary pieces of timeless style. She loves to explore the beauty in pure geometry and form, making strong lines and bold structures wearable. A focus on creativity extends to working with clients and artists on bespoke commissions to create a unique outcome to be treasured for years to come.
