The works of sixteen internationals artists, inspired by vintage wear and photography is on display amid a backdrop of graphic installations.
Pure craftsmanship and goldsmith techniques characterize the timeless pieces near the entrance. The exhibition celebrates the art of jewellery making and perfectly captures the unique relationship between a jeweller and their precious metals. Any aspiring jewellers might even leave inspired to put their jewellery making skills into practice by investing in some Jewellery tools. Elsewhere, an in-house workshop separates the refined gemstone, gold and diamond creations from the in-house exhibit of intriguingly wild fine art fashion statements.
