The Gift – as Heirloom

18 November @ 10:00 am - 24 December @ 5:00 pm

Free

A Gift has the potential to cause change, create bonds within families and communities. 

 

Craft NI and the Association for Contemporary Jewellery & Silversmiths NI welcome you to The Gift – as Heirloom, a contemporary jewellery exhibition which promises to awe the viewer with a rich tapestry of techniques, materials and concepts, making this Christmas Jewellery Selling Show a must-visit over the coming weeks. 

 

CRAFT NI are delighted to welcome ACJ NI to Craft NI Gallery for a second Christmas jewellery selling show. ACJNI will bring the most accomplished new work from nine of their members and associates who are practising contemporary jewellers in Northern Ireland. This year the selected makers will create neckpieces and earrings in response to the title of The Gift inspired by Lewis Hyde’s book of the same title.

Jewellery has a strong association with being gifted, usually as an act of love, devotion, or a memento to mark an occasion. It carries deep personal stories and powerful narratives that connect us through generations and time – an heirloom.

The Gift is an exhibition that will represent the richness of approaches and a diversity of materials, skilfully combined to create meaningful stories about our culture and values. It is also an opportunity to see and purchase the work of our best contemporary designer makers brought together at the CRAFT NI Gallery.

Participating jewellers are Anne Earls Boylan, Jill Graham, Cameron & Breen, Clodagh Molloy, Lotus de Wit, Fiona Kerr, Camilla Prey, Eddie Doherty and Celine Traynor.
