Perfect Strangers celebrates the unconventional, non-traditional, and unexpected by facilitating a chance interaction between eleven strangers, all international Contemporary Jewellers working with experimental materials and techniques.

Plastic, wood, paint, bone, ceramics and randomly found objects meet silver, gold, and precious stones, creating unexpected wearable-scale sculptures that push boundaries of contemporary craft.

The exhibition juxtaposes unlikely and individual approaches to create a fresh vision, resulting in work that finds empowerment through the dichotomies of treasure, the throw away, memory of material, chaos and order, monumental forms and human scale, they hint at past and present, traditional and technological, social interactions, fears and desires.

A 24-hour window display creates a fresh and fleeting moment to embrace the contradictory nature of eleven artistic visions coming together.
