Dazzle@Dovecot (Dazzle Exhibitions)

By | Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013

Dazzle is an initiative that allows the innovative work of newly graduated jewellery designers to be seen, and it remains true to that ethos, since none of the jewellery resembles conventional high street fodder: it is the kind usually seen modelled in magazines rather than worn in public. The pieces are bold, ideal for those brave and determined enough to wear the latest in daring and original design, as well as also being ornaments of beauty and elegance in their own right, full of rich references to nature:  some works evoke a snake’s spine, while others draw inspiration from more ornate floral patterns or butterflies. The beautiful prints by the Japanese artist Emiko Aida form a rich complement to the jewellery.

Dovecot, until 26 Aug, 10.30am-6.30pm.
