Save the Bling date for Fine Art Kangaroo Island’s annual jewellery cocktail party

The Bling Thing! – Fine Art Kangaroo Island’s annual jewellery cocktail party  – kicks off the festive season early this year, on Thursday, November 22 at 5.15 pm in the Fine Art gallery and courtyard, in Kingscote.

Eight talented jewellery designers, all with deep connections to the Island are busy creating new work for the exhibition whilst local models are busy coordinating their fashion forward or favourite Boho outfits ready to be matched to a jeweller of their choice.

The Bling Thing brings together Kangaroo Island jewellery artists, a delightful garden setting, and an outstanding Kangaroo Island Spirits cocktail experience.

This highly anticipated annual jewellery showcase is a tradition on the pre-Christmas calendar with local models mingling with guests who can touch and try on the jewellery, add their favourites to the gift register, whilst enjoying tastings and award winning KIS cocktails.

The exhibiting jewellers draw upon their relationship with island life in their choice of themes for their work and this year there will be new designs from Patti Blucher, Fred Peters, Cecilia Gunnarsson, Peggy Rismiller, Lilly Griffith, Anne Morrison and Audrey Harnett promises a new series of her large silver flowers.

For those people who wish to demonstrate a little fashion flair, there is an opportunity to win a beautiful sterling silver Fred Peters pendant, with silent judges moving among the crowd to choose the best-coordinated jewellery and outfit of the night.

Everyone attending will be eligible to win an eye-catching sterling silver piece, first released at this year’s National Wine Centre exhibition.

Everyone is welcome with the night kicking off at 5.15pm and the official opening at 6pm. For more information or to register as a model contact Fleur on 017 832 037 or fineartki@bigpond.com
