Opening Event: 6pm, Friday 13 May • Presented by RUA RED as part of the Year of Craft 2011

Ornament is a stunning exhibition of brooches, designed and made by some of the finest contemporary studio jewellers based in Ireland and the UK. The exhibition highlights current trends and celebrates the rich diversity in European jewellery.

This group of dynamic makers challenge the boundaries of their craft, art and wearability. Prevalent trends and approaches are addressed in this exhibition exploiting conceptual jewellery, slow, and fast craft techniques and materials. The common link between all the makers is their sensitivity to the materials they use, mastery of their craftand strong individual identity.

Each maker uses a variety of techniques when creating their work. The makers focusing on slow craft present contemporary design and ingenuity of traditional techniques through a variety of precious and non-precious materials. Techno craft techniques are explored by makers using cutting edge technology and materials including laser cutters and rapid prototype machines. Conceptual jewellers accentuate thought provoking work which conveys a meaning and message in their jewellery.

Exhibiting makers include Debbie Paul, Seliena Coyle, Niamh Mulligan, Inga Reed, Julie Connelan, Jessica Turrell, Sarah Keay, Pauline Edie, Clare Hillerby, Emma Barnett.
