Twelve to 15 emerging and established artists working in the field of contemporary jewelry. Many of these artists explore new uses for common materials and skillfully exploit the material qualities to produce exceptional wearable pieces. A number of artists may use more traditional materials and techniques - altered and refined with a contemporary sensibility. The collection is aimed at highlighting the influences of crossing material boundaries, new technical skills, and the ever-changing art of adornment.
