Contemporary jewelry, located at the intersection of contemporary art, design, and craft, emphasizes the notion of value inherent in traditional adornment, as well as the relationship of contemporary art to the human body.
Jewelry Links: the contemporary Turkish jewelry collective is a body of contemporary jewelry artists who bring geography, the passage of time, and their own personal stories and expression to their work. As contemporary Turkish jewelry designers, members of the group combine the complex skills involved in traditional jewelry-making with unconventional materials or combinations of material.
The goal of the collective is twofold: to preserve and maintain the originality, skills, and artistic discipline of each individual while using our numbers to generate a critical mass of interest both locally and abroad, giving the work the exposure and recognition that it so richly deserves.
