Chain Reaction Exhibition 2014.

We are ready for the next opening of our Chain Reaction Exhibition at Space CRAFT, lots of positive feedback so far! This exhibition brings together the work of 14 unique contemporary jewellers based in/or from Ireland. To find out more check out our facebook page here or our blog for some sneak peaks.

Jewellery workshops available to the public for further information find further information on our blog here.

A bit of background on the exhibition:

The title ‘Chain Reaction’ comes from our aim and great desire to bring together jewellers of the conceptually inspired variety. It is an ever growing chain that reflects AJN and its growing community. For this exhibition each jeweller has been invited to make a chain which will be part of a large installation piece. Alongside this we will also show a range of each makers jewellery offering an insight into their own practice.

As much as our network is about bringing together fellow conceptual jewellers, we want to bring more public awareness to our form of art. We are also offering two interactive workshops for the public as part of the exhibition.
