Sleight of Hand - Exhibition Opening
18/11/2015 / 5 - 7pm

This year’s exhibition from the Association for Contemporary Jewellery is about magic – the magic of making, illusions, pulling ideas out of hats and thin air. Clever fingers, deception, smoke & mirrors, craftiness and sheer skill.

29 makers and 54 pieces will be showcased from ACJ members as far afield as Vienna and Australia, as well as jewellers working in all corners of the UK.

The makers present a wide range of techniques, from traditional to contemporary, whilst utilising unusual materials (including plastics, paper, resin, glass, found objects and various metals) and demonstrating a vibrant display of skill, wit and excellent design.

The Association for Contemporary Jewellery was founded in 1997 to promote greater understanding of contemporary jewellery practice, to support jewellers’ creative and professional development and to develop audiences for this lively field of contemporary craft and design.
