The Sydney gallery composed of a retail and exhibition area showcasing contemporary jewellery by Australian and international contemporary designer jewellery artists, and a working studio where customers could see the work in progress.
In 2016 Studio20/17 closed the doors Studio 20/17 Atelier was conceived by co-founder Melanie Ihnen. Melanie founded this intimate creative space from her desire to create and showcase her contemporary jewellery creations alongside a curated selection of contemporary Australian jewellery artists.
