Intro
1st issue of Current Obsession Magazine was presented during the Schmuck week in Munich 6-12 March 2013. The theme of our first issue is The Archetypes - an investigation into the core of jewellery, an attempt to explore where the boundaries of the field lie and whether there are any boundaries!
Current Obsession - is a new printed magazine about jewellery and its relation to different fields of art — performance, illustration, photography, etc. Apart from jewellery artists and critics, we feature material researchers, fashion designers, collagists and many more. Our goal is to create a different dimension for jewellery in printed environment. We tell inspiring stories about people and places, touching upon subjects like value, language and presentation. 

Our motto is "JEWELLERY IS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT "

The theme of our first issue is The Archetypes - an investigation into the core of jewellery, an attempt to explore where the boundaries of the field lie and whether there are any boundaries!
