Launceston jeweller Katherine Brunacci has won her third prestigious A’ Design Award since 2012.

Brunacci, who owns Launceston’s Gallery Fifty Four, said “it is still the same sense of excitement”. 

“It’s nice to be consistent,” Brunacci said.

She said the award equalled international recognition, and would result in publicity abroad. 

Winning pieces go on a travelling exhibition worldwide, resulting in amazing exposure. 

She won the jewellery, eyewear and watch design category with a unique, intricate pendant.

The pendant can even hold a small amount of fragrance.

“I’ve never seen anything like it, I always get comments on it … whenever I wear it,” Brunacci said. 

Brunacci will head over to Italy’s stunning Lake Como for the awards ceremony in June. 

Her new jewellery collection will be released on Friday, she said.
