‘Collectibles and Curiosities’

by Craft NI Gallery | Belfast
Date of event: 10/11/22 - 30/12/22

“Collectible and Curious”, two words that describe the history of our obsession with jewellery, precious materials and objects that tell stories about who we are and how we see ourselves.

For this exhibition, the Association of Contemporary Jewellers and Silversmiths NI has brought together 18 contemporary jewellers and silversmiths from all over the world. Each piece relates to the theme “Collectibles and Curiosities” representing a wide range of narratives and cultures.

Their diverse approaches to the brief show not only technical precision and a dynamic use of materials, they also reflect their artistry as storytellers. Jewellery is a statement to both challenge and delight; Collectible & Curious!
