Members of the Jewellers and Silversmiths Network (JSN) have looked at the concept of 'Message - Beyond Adornment' in their designs that is more than just decorative and to express a range of 'messages' that are environmental, social, personal or philosophical.
The Jewellers and Silversmiths Network is a group run by and for its members with the aim of strengthening links and opportunities between makers in the local area around Farnham and Surrey The skills and use of materials of the JSN members are diverse and numerable, creating a dynamic selection of pieces and the exhibition will present work by Dani Crompton, Poppy Porter, Rebecca Skeels, Ruta Brown, Sarah Broadhead, Chantal Walters and Janet Richardson.
In addition to the pieces created by the members of the group, the exhibition involves the public by inviting them to expressing their views through jewellery. They are asked to design and submit a reversible necklace that says 'I Agree' on one side and 'I Disagree' on the other; terminology commonly used in today's world of international social media. The necklaces will then be swapped among the participants.
