PINNED I

We are delighted to invite you to our first group exhibition as the Association for Contemporary Jewellers & Silversmiths NI (ACJ NI) on 2 November 2020 to 2 January 2021.

Pinned presented the work of 23 local jewellers and silversmiths who have each responded to the exhibition’s theme to produce one-of-a-kind pieces beyond the scope of their usual commission or production work.

The exhibition featured over 50 variations on the idea of a brooch, with versions in both precious and non-precious materials. Traditionally set stones contrast with re-purposed vintage tins and toys, precision geometry meets abstract forms. Gold, silver and gemstones sit alongside found objects in unexpected interpretations that demonstrate technical accomplishment, innovation and creativity.

Exhibition Dates: 2 November 2020 – 2 January 2021.

Venue: Craft NI, 115 – 119 Royal Avenue, Belfast, BT1 1FF
