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 Association for Contemporary Jewelry was launched in May 2015 during Romanian Design Week, as a result of a 6-year project supporting, developing and structuring the emergent field of contemporary jewelry. Assamblage is the main and most active platform in Romania dedicated to the craft and design of jewelry as an independent art form, contributing to the cultural context of the past few years to the increased activity in the field of jewelry in close connection to related fields such as architecture, product design and visual arts.
