This year’s member exhibition was all about magic – the magic of making, illusions, pulling ideas out of hats and thin air. Clever fingers, deception, smoke & mirrors, craftiness and sheer skill. 29 makers and 54 pieces were showcased from ACJ members as far afield as Vienna and Australia, as well as jewellers working in all corners of the UK.
The makers presented a wide range of techniques, from traditional to contemporary, whilst utilising unusual materials (including plastics, paper, resin, glass, found objects and various metals) and demonstrated a vibrant display of skill, wit and excellent design.
The tour finished at the Plymouth College of Art Gallery on 12th December.
