2018 Exhibition

Perspectives – Creating Jewellery for a Fairer Future

Each year, an exhibition is displayed at Elements to complement the selling fair and events programme.

We are delighted to announce that the 2018 exhibition, Perspectives – Creating Jewellery for a Fairer Future, will be on view for the duration of Elements, featuring a range of works that consider the concept of fair making. Perspectives has been curated by the Incorporation of Goldsmiths in partnership with Fair Luxury.

Perspectives aims to raise awareness of issues in the metal, stone and jewellery industries, such as unfair working practices, environmental damage and health and safety risks, while also exploring the many ways makers and consumers can choose to engage with fair making.

The exhibition will shine a light on a range of approaches to fairly made jewellery, such as the provenance of metals and stones; the conditions in which makers and miners work; the environmental and social impact of creating the finished piece; and the importance of cultural craftsmanship.
