It’s been quite some time (15months) since I last visited the National Gallery of Victoria to specifically look for the contemporary jewellery display.
Given it had been a while, I felt I had something of an expectation to see a change in the display.
It’s not obvious … perhaps there may have been one or two swap outs-ins … though the majority looked to be same to me.
Sigh. Sad news. I’m sure there are some in storage that would love to come out!
In other gallery visiting news though, nearby there was an amazing exhibit.

What an unexpected and complete joy.
A pump gently (and silently) moves the water so that the differently-sized porcelain bowls to clink into each other … the sound is so peaceful and beautiful, transcendental.
This was my highlight of the level 3 visit.
