Intro
SEXY 20th Legnica International Jewellery Competition is the most important exhibition of the Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER. The winners has now been announced.
TO BE SEXY OR NOT TO BE…
words: if human is sexy, if money is sexy, if power is sexy, if mind is sexy, why do we think that jewellery should be functional…? Is being sexy a necessary condition for the existence in the contemporary world? When sexy is everything, is anything really sexy? Can contemporary jewellery still stir up the senses and emotions?
