> DESCRIPTION

Each edition of the biannual international design competition New Traditional Jewellery has a different theme. This year’s theme is New Nomads. Contemporary jewellery designers take the traditional jewellery of for instance nomads, pilgrims, explorers, world travellers, refugees and colonists, as the starting point for new designs. The jury selected five winners from a group of 300 competitors. Contemporary themes as globalisation and digitisation can be found in many of the designs. Personal stories, family history and local traditions are often used as source of inspiration. The exhibition consists of 37 pieces of jewellery from more than 14 countries, including Israel, Mexico, China, New Zealand and The Netherlands.


Presentatie van winnaars en genomineerden van de ontwerpwedstrijd New Traditional Jewellery met dit jaar als thema New Nomads. De ontwerpopdracht bestaat er uit dat een oude traditie, techniek of symbool uit de sieradengeschiedenis een nieuwe vorm wordt gegeven. Bij de inzending van het sieraad wordt ook een afbeelding van de historische inspiratiebron meegestuurd.

Iedereen mag inzenden; studenten, auto-didacten en professionele sieradenmakers.
