Halifax 2017

Great design resists categorization, leaning over the boundaries between design, craft, and fine art. This micro-exhibition celebrates the work of jewellers in Halifax who do just that — expanding the field of jewellery to include tools, treasures, and wearable sculpture.

These kinetic objects have hidden features, from a locket that displays an image in 3D, to a gold ring that will turn the wearer’s finger green. Encouraging play through the use of moving parts and unconventional materials, these objects close the gap between jewellery and fine art.
