With an international reputation for showcasing the best in radical contemporary jewellery, Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, based at Salts Mill since 1996 will be marking its sixteenth birthday with flair!
KLJ are hosting two special celebratory exhibitions this summer to mark their anniversary at Salts Mill. Flourish - a fantastical array of art jewellery from around the globe and FlourishRing - 100 international jewellers connected to the gallery each entering one exuberant ring in a special competition. The winner will be decided by public vote!


Flourish will be an flamboyant showcase of art jewellery selected from around the world. Following the theme of wearable art 'flourishing' in a growing garden of jewellery, it is set to include giant porcelain cabbage necklaces, cut glass ‘Wine Leaf’ brooches and overblown bright blue enamel blossom jewels.

Additionally 100 international jewellers involved with the gallery over the last sixteen years have been invited to each enter an exuberant celebratory ring into a competition called FlourishRing. Visitors to the gallery will be able to vote for their favourite by trying it on and being photographed modelling it. These photos will then become part of a growing installation on the walls of the gallery. The FlourishRing that gets the most public votes during the exhibition will win £250.

 

The gallery has represented a host of fantastic jewellers over the years including many renowned award winning UK and international art jewellers like Jacqueline Mina OBE, Georg Dobler, Adam Paxon and Malcolm Morris.



Kath Libbert, the gallery's founder and curator says: "We are honoured that these celebrities of the jewellery world are all going to be taking part in FlourishRing along with many new creative talents. I can’t wait to see what they each come up with!!”

 

Visitors are invited to participate in the exhibition by voting for their favourite ring and upon voting will be automatically entered into a draw to win £100 of KLJ vouchers.
