For the first time ever, a selection of the best of Czech contemporary jewellery, object and metalwork comes to London.


While Czech glass and costume jewellery already have a strong reputation in the United Kingdom, Purity and Decadence is the first group exhibition showcasing contemporary Czech jewellery to the British audience. Each of the presented artists is renowned in their field and unique in their style and approach to object. The award-winning collections by Eva Eisler, Nastassia Aleinikava, Zorya, Markéta Kratochvílová and students of the K.O.V. studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, are connected by their original vision pushing the boundaries of what we understand by art, jewellery and exceptional craftsmanship.

Throughout May, the talented designers will fill up the beautiful space of Gallery S O with purely minimalist silver objects, crystalized ropes, futuristic eyewear, brooches inspired by mediaeval manuscripts and decadent accessories crossing the lines between jewellery and fashion.

Part of London Craft Week.
Commissioned by the Czech Centre London as part of the Czech Republic 100 anniversary.
