THIS November saw the start of the famous Dazzle contemporary jewellery exhibition, at the National Theatre, transforming its foyer into a sparkling display of the most exciting contemporary jewellery around. The show will be introducing recent graduates picked from the graduate shows by the Dazzle team, as well as the bigger names in jewellery design, including the work by Jane Adam, Emiko Aida, a printmaker and painter from Tokyo, Sheffield designer Jessica Briggs and many more exquisite designers.
Dazzle’s display at the National Theatre, will not only be an exhibit of jewellery, but there will also be pieces by printmakers and silversmiths, which are also all handmade. The Dazzle exhibition will be displaying thousands of pieces by a selection of nearly 100 designers, direct from the creators and are available for purchase and you are able to take them home the same day.
This will be the perfect time to buy your loved ones a unique and magical Christmas present, however, it’s best to get there early as the exhibition is set to attract around 10, 000 visitors during its two month showcase. In conjunction with the London show, a simultaneous exhibition will also be running at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester – the original hosts of Dazzle, 30 years ago.
Dazzle has continued to grow over the years into the largest selling contemporary jewellery exhibition in Europe and it has launched successful careers of over 500 and responsible for encouraging designers to experiment and introduce new, radical designs, in exciting materials and using innovative techniques.
Finally, for those born in 1981, Dazzle is offering you lucky few a fifteen percent discount on various pieces, to celebrate the year there were founded. All you need to provide is a proof of birth date, but don’t worry they won’t tell anyone.
The Dazzle exhibition runs from 7 November – 8 January
