Intro
It has become a tradition (started 4 years ago) at Tinsel to have a big group show at the end of the year - every year we choose a group of around 40 contemporary jewellers in South Africa to join us, and we come up with some kind of theme.

Artist list

Carine Ackerman, Jan Bekker, Conrad Botes, Errico Cassar, Geraldine Fenn, Joani Groenewald, Jaco Haasbroek, Marita Johnson, Alisa Knoblaugh, Kathlyn Lange, Liz Loubser, Eric Loubser, Frieda Luhl, Anne Manaczynski, Inge Marais, Carla Maxine, Sylvia Mckeown, Meagan Meredith, Nina Newman, Rachelle Poon, Anine Roos, Nicky Savage, Shelagh Scholes, Mariet Schwalb, Emily Stainer, Hilda Swart, Carine Terreblanche, Mariette Theron, Gela Tolken, Nanette Veldsman, Samantha Vincent, Gina Waldman, Erika Wessels, Karien van Langelaar, Frank van Reenen, Hermien van Staden
Each artist is required to produce one original piece for the show, and we put together a small catalogue. For this year's show we decided on a theme of "Portrait" which lends itself to more figurative and narrative pieces, and the artists have responded with a great variety of interesting work. For the first time this year we also invited some fine artists to join us, because of the theme, so we have an engaging exhibition that showcases work in several media.
