Established in 2004 by metal smith and designer Cesar Cueva, Metalab is a gallery and studio space that specialises in innovative jewellery from emerging and established craft practitioners.
Emily Hunt is one such talent, and her first solo exhibition is currently on at the Gallery. But the exhibition finishes this weekend so hurry up! Using silicon, fabric, bead, leather, and thread, Emily creates bespoke necklaces that explore and mimic the body.
And stay tuned for “Nomad”, Metalab’s next exhibition starting March 4. It’s the first Sydney show of Melbourne talent Djurdjica Kesic. She creates beautiful neckpieces using an armful of pre-loved materials such as timber, exploring the idea of home and the migrant experience.
