Experience a dazzling international display of contemporary jewellery, connecting the work of 50 designers from the UK’s Association for Contemporary Jewellery and its Italian sister organisation, the Associazione Gioiello Contemporaneo.

Connections is a broad exploration of jewellery as body adornment; new technologies and traditional jewellery skills are applied to create pieces that range in size, from the minuscule to the majestic. Precious and non-precious materials, including textiles, plastics, enamel, concrete, gold, silver, titanium, aluminium and found objects, are combined to create conceptual and decorative work. 

On tour in the UK and Italy until 2020, the exhibition will celebrate the creative connections, collaborations and synergy of ideas that exist between makers from both member organisations. It brings together creative practitioners from the UK and Italy and across the world, including makers from Australia, USA, South Korea, Serbia, Japan, Germany and Greece.
