As a member of the « Inyanim Group » Dana Seachuga (MA stud) will show some of her work at the exhibition « Through Sources » • Camões Instituto da Língua e Cooperação, Lisbon • 2 May – 7 June • Opening: 2 May, 6 pm.
about the « Inyanim Group »:
« The Inyanim Group operates in the fields of jewelry-making and jewelry design. Its aim is to create a platform of creative opportunity and legitimacy for the individuals within the group and within a wider social context.
Inyanim was formed by graduates of the two leading Israeli art and designschools, Bezalel and Shenkar which, while championing different, often opposing views regarding design and art, have much in common. The Inyanim Group seeks to influence the public discourse surrounding the role of design in society through the unique and underrepresented field of jewelry design.
The eleven members of the group meet regularly for a process of thinking, listening and creating – like rehearsals before a performance. In ongoing exhibitions, the group then displays its latest “harvest” of works, thus opening a window onto their creative process. »

« Foreign Body: Giving Jewelry a Second Look »
Foreign Body: Giving Jewelry a Second Look features the work of 15 Israeli jewelers who demonstrate an unfaltering commitment to individual expression through highly-developed techniques in jewelry-making. The works in the exhibition challenge traditional, mainstream attitudes toward this ancient practice with surprising investigations on scale, wearability, materials, and narrative or critical content, positioning the body as a locus for unfamiliar encounters between jewelry object and wearer

B-side DownTown Art Jewellery Festival:
An energetic, self-created festival for jewellery artists. It brings together a series of jewellery exhibitions and performances on different locations throughout the city of Amsterdam.
contact us at email@example.com
B-side DownTownArtJewellery Festival is an energetic, self-created festival for jewellery artists. The 2nd edition takes place from the 3rd until the 6th of November 2011 and brings together a series of jewellery exhibitions and performances in the city of Amsterdam. This event is initiated by min-association; Maaike Ebbinge – Iris Tsante – Noémie Doge,
who graduated from Amsterdam’s Gerrit Rietveld Academy in 2007 and 2008.
B-side gives artists the opportunity to explore new ways of showing their jewellery to the world. Each artist is encouraged to take responsibility for his of her own part in a bigger chain or route.
B-side emphasises the festive side of a festival and celebrate the art of jewellery. The aim of the festival is to show different ways of presenting and thinking about art jewellery through exhibitions and performances. It allows exploration of spaces that aren’t usually used for exhibition purposes, for example parks, ateliers, bicycles, empty buildings, a living room, a café or the back of a car.
B-side happens simultaneously with other inspiring jewellery events in Amsterdam.
B-side shows designs that go very much beyond mass-produced jewellery. It shows an artistic way of presenting and dealing with jewellery. The value of this jewellery is not defined by precious metals, but by their visual force and strong concept.
There are many jewellery artists working in Amsterdam. Three of the four most renowned Dutch jewellery galleries are based here, and the jewellery department of the Rietveld Academy is well-k
nown for its active students and teachers. We are very happy to be able to celebrate Amsterdam’s special connection to jewellery with this special platform for art jewellery.
B-side, another side of jewellery.

Christiaan Lebens – Broche Ode to Imperfection, 2010 Materiaal: polyurethaan, zilver, parels
Christiaan Lebens and Fien de Graaf worked with the same subjects for some time. Both fascinated by the dominant ideals surrounding beauty and the layers we create around the physical self. They decided to bring their work together.
Where the heart is
”Strong wind in the face, the sea roaring loudly, lots of curious materials hidden in the sand, my thoughts explore the freedom of space. This is where the heart is, this is where my jewellery pieces are born.” M.E.
“I like working intensively with materials. When the materials start “speaking” and taking their own way, that is where their heart is.” I.T.
“I search for hidden stories by dismantling forgotten relics; I reinvent them picking up the pieces; I’m a treasure hunter, ferreting where their heart is. ” N.D.

lelletje : All our earrings are designed by well-known Avant-Garde designers .A pair of earrings is never an adornment in itself. They are inspired by bright ideas which gives birth to a range of creations. (you can find the earrings from Dinie Besems)
