Small Space Jewellery is an intimate encounter of the contemporary kind, first established in 2000 by Robyn Wernicke, who has been working as a jeweller and designer for over 30 years.
Small Space specialises in hand made, one off pieces for a discerning clientele that actively seek out the hand made.
Robyn holds an Honours Degree in Fine Art – Gold and Silver Smithing, completed at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and an

Robyn has exhibited both in Australia and overseas and her work has been acquired for several collections.
More recently Robyn's work has been published in several books including a jury selected Belgium "International annual of contemporary jewel art" and the "Spanish year book of contemporary jewellery". Also a book published on "Australian makers marks from 1950 to 2005".
A commitment to broadening public education in contemporary jewellery and design is an on going project with a passion for individuality, seeking out the unusual without compromise on skill and workmanship.
Small Space specialises in all forms of repair work, remodelling of existing jewellery and hand made, one off individual pieces for a discerning clientele that actively seeks out the hand made.
We work with a variety of materials including gold, platinum, silver and diamonds. Fossils and rare gemstones also, including many that are found in Australia. We use enamel, perspex, buttons and some more unusual materials such as titanium, aluminium and glass. This makes for a collection that is vibrant with colour and design.
Small Space Jewellery calls for more than a casual glance if you are to take in the treasures hidden throughout. Customers are encouraged to try the pieces on and are given information about the making process, the materials and the designer.
We have gift vouchers available and a six-week lay-by.
