A Crafts Council Touring Exhibition of contemporary jewellery, featuring 98 pieces

of studio jewellery by the most significant European makers from the last five decades. Starting with pieces from the most radical era of modern jewellery making in the 1970s: the New Jewellery Movement, I AM HERE tells a story of jewellery and design through the work held in the collections of Crafts Council, mima, Galerie Marzee, Gallery S O and Pangolin London.

Includes work by Susanna Heron, one of the first jewellers to use Perspex in the early 1970s, a film of an arm piece made of ice by Naomi Filmer and a bejewelled fur-coated emperor penguin brooch by Dutch jeweller Felieke van der Leest.

Other makers include Gijs Bakker, Caroline Broadhead, Tatty Devine, Gerda Flöckinger, Karl Fritsch, Rudolf Kocea, Ted Noten, Dorothea Prühl, Mah Rana, Hans Stofer, David Watkins and Emmy van Leersum.

This exhibition has been supported by Creative Scotland.
