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.
B-side DownTownArtJewellery Festival is organised by: (Maaike Ebbinge, Iris Tsante & Noémie Doge)

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.

————————————- collection of Jeff Grundy earrings resembles a collection of coral branches 

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)

« NO PROBLEM (?) » is curated by Deganit Stern Schocken – a leading force in the field of Contemporary Art Jewelry and one of Israel’s most important studio jewelers.

EXPO ‘Bijoux d’Israel », Espace SOLIDOR, Cagnes-sur-mer (FR) – 5 juin-10 octobre 2010

L’exposition de Cagnes sur Mer “Bijoux d’Israël” présentera les bijoux de Vered Kaminski (qui enseigne à l’Université des Arts de Bezalel à Jérusalem), de Déganit Stern-Schocken (qui enseigne au Collège de Shenka  Engineering and Design de Tel Aviv), d’Attai Chen et de Grégory Larin

EXPO 'Bijoux d'Israel

Le vernissage aura lieu le 4 juin à 18h,  et l’exposition sera ouverte au public du 5 juin jusqu’au dimanche 10 octobre.

« Cette rétrospective itinérante a été présentée aux Etats-Unis (Wisconsin, Washington, Houston, New Jersey ) passe par l’Europe pour aboutir à Jérusalem (The Israel Museum). C’est la première fois que des artistes israëliens sont présentés à l’Espace Solidor. Il s’agit entre autres de Vered Kaminski et Deganit Stern Schocken, professeurs de bijouterie depuis plus de 20 ans (respectivement aux Beaux-Arts de Jérusalem et de Tel Aviv) et responsables des départements bijouterie-design. Tous les jeunes artistes prometteurs d’Israël sortent des cours de ces deux grandes artistes.
Ces créatrices, figures de proue du bijou dans leur pays, traduisent leurs vécus et expériences à travers des œuvres belles et puissantes. Grâce à elles, Israël s’est forgé une identité propre dans le mouvement du bijou contemporain, bien différente de celles de l’Europe et de l’Amérique. Bien qu’elles aient participé à des actions artistiques en Europe, leur travail est autobiographique et révèle qu’elles sont avant tout des femmes vivant en Israël, et que leur culture les a fortement influencées. »

« Vered Kaminski, is a formalist with a taste for abstract design and a love for the rocks and stones at your feet on a dusty road. Kaminski is also a master of negative space who can create silver necklaces that suggest elaborate paper chains or origami. » (Ornament Magazine)
