For the last few years Bilk Gallery has been taking jewellery archetypes, such as the chain, earrings and brooches  and inviting a their stable of artists to reinvent, reimagine and reconstruct the particular archetype for exhibit. 

 

This year Bilk invites you to Ring Master, an exhibition exploring the notion and designs of the humble (and not so humble) ring. 

 

From cocktail rings, to a simple wedding band, from the razzle dazzle , sparkle, bling to the poignant, fine, and ephemeral the breath of invention and style one may adorn ones hands with is endless. 

 

Bilk Gallery has been showcasing contemporary Glass and metal for over 16 years. Located in the heart of Manuka, the gallery  promotes the best of young emerging artists, as well as established internationally renowned artists.
