Heirloom

‘THE GIFT – As Heirloom’ Exhibition

ACJSNI are delighted to be invited by CRAFT NI once again, to bring the most accomplished new work from their members and associates. This year 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 Jill Graham, Cameron & Breen, Clodagh Molloy, Lotus de Wit, Fiona Kerr, Camilla Prey and Celine Traynor. 

Venue: CRAFT NI Gallery, 115-119 Royal Avenue, Belfast.

Dates: Thursday 18 November – 24 December 21.
