Today we had the sad news from Mary Kios that after seven years in business, Brilliant Facets Jewellery and Art Gallery will soon be closing. Mary has been very supportive over the years of MoB Workspace, JMGQ (Jewellers and Metalsmiths Group QLD) and many individual jewellers, artsits and craftspeople in Brisbane and Queensland. She always worked hard, too hard in fact, as her dedication to the gallery and cafe often meant that she did not get the time to make more of the beautiful rich gold, lapiz lazuli and pearl brooches, necklaces and earrings that she always wore. There is nothing else like Brilliant Facets on earth, tucked away near the Old Botanical Gardens, it is a treasure trove of the unexpected. But all is not lost. She is reconfiguring the business and will be back with avengance after a well-earned break.We'd like to thank her and wish her the very best for the future venture.
