Many pieces of auteur jewellery are produced using craft processes. Wood, iron, ceramics, paper, gold... high quality materials that, in the hands of a craftsperson, become pieces in a collection. Artesania Catalunya, which is part of the Catalan Government's Trade, Craftsmanship and Fashion Consortium, shows a selection of contemporary artistic craftwork at JOYA, all produced in Catalonia.
Assamblage - The National Contemporary Jewelry Association was launched in May 2015 during Romanian Design Week, the result of a 6-year project supporting, developing and structuring the emerging field of contemporary jewellery. Assamblage is the main and most active platform in Romania dedicated to the craft and design of jewellery as an independent art form. We have contributed to the cultural context over the past few years with increased activity in the field of jewellery, in close connection with related fields such as architecture, product design and visual arts.
