Peta Kruger ‘This Fool’s Gold’ @ Pieces of Eight

28 09 2012

I first developed a bit of a jewellery-crush on Peta Kruger‘s work on a Sydney trip a few years ago.
Her current exhibition ‘This Fool’s Gold‘ is in the windows of Pieces of Eight.
It’s totally gorgeous – playful and colourful and joyous.

If only I’d got to the exhibition sooner, perhaps I could have taken home the absolutely adorable painted container in the top-middle of the above image.

Exhibition media: “Her new work, created exclusively for this exhibition, comprises entirely of painted brass works, demonstrating a continued link between her practice as an illustrator and jeweller. These wearable works are lively, and informed by her much loved jewellery collection from childhood.

The central neckpiece is fabulous. For me, the neckpieces and painted objects were the standouts.

And painted cut crystal/glassware – why didn’t I think of that! Genius. Love it.

Make sure you spend a little time looking at her website, so much to like.

Peta Kruger’s ‘This Fool’s Gold‘ is at Pieces of Eight until 6th October 2012.
