HOT – Stone and Metal – Shop 3/60 James St (Cnr Arthur St), Fortitude Valley

From June 2nd to 9th, sildenafil James St businesses will kick things up a notch in with a cool, new local project which sees the showcasing of contemporary art within the design and retail stores that reside on the funky strip.

One of the participating retailers is the ultra cool and seriously original Stone and Metal Contemporary Jewellery.  Located just off James St, Stone and Metal is an almost hidden treasure and well worth a visit if original, chunky, raw, delicate, how-did-they-do-that pieces are your kind of thing.

The Stone and Metal gallery beautifully displays contemporary jewellery from around the world as well as hand crafted pieces from Australian designers.  Just my luck, the beautiful sterling silver bracelet bundle I had my eye on was a little (ok, a lot) outside my price range but there are plenty of affordable designs as well, of all shapes and sizes.

Combinations of sterling silver pieces with pretty gemstones, chunky aquamarine, amethyst and other rocks of beauty (ok, geology’s not my strong point!) feature in the beautiful display cases.

Owner and super-goldsmith Samantha showcases her own handcrafted pieces which are a perfect balance of strength, delicacy and femininity.

The Art on James program will bring a new, fresh vibe to the already fashionable James St precinct and it’s so refreshing to see Brisbane embracing these sorts of initiatives.  The retailers such as Stone and Metal are putting on bubbles, tunes, nibbles and more to flaunt their wares as well doing their bit to support local contemporary artists.

  1. Stone & Metal is a truly magic store and the prices are very reasonable. This is not costume Jewellery but made with sterling silver/and or gold. I suggest you give it a try if you want locally handmade pieces. Great for gifts for family or friends or just for yourself as a special treat.
