For some strange reason, you have never seen contemporary jewellery. Or been close to it. Don’t blame yourself: it’s a practice so confidential that it flirts with the invisible. It is the bastard child of craft, design and art, and we are still unsure whether it will survive this complicated heritage. Seven of Europe’s finest, with pedigrees to make their mothers proud, will soon be strutting their stuff around the corner from you. Please come: you’ll see things you’ve never seen before.
The curators – Leo Caballero, Amador Bartomeu (Klimt02) and with the support of Benjamin Lignel.

Awesome intro. I couldn’t have said it better myself. And I didn’t.
