ORGANISeD BY: Pine Rivers Regional Art Gallery                         ORGANISeD BY: Chinchilla White Gums Gallery



Beyond Diamonds is an exhibition of contemporary jewellery with
works by eleven jewellery makers using a wide range of alternative
materials including leather, porcelain, glass, laser etched acrylic,
paper, Tupperware, silk, felt and found objects.

Despite working with gold and diamonds every day, curator and
manufacturing jeweller Tracey Wallace always wanted to "mix it
up", explore textures and colours regardless of their preciousness
and use every day affordable materials to create something
beautiful. This exhibition explores these possibilities.
