NTJ 2014 CONFRONTATIONS
New Traditional Jewellery, International design contest and (travelling) exhibition.

NTJ’s raison d’être:
"All human joys and burdens have been materialized in jewellery," according to art historian Marjan Unger. Jewellery marks every crossroads in our life, every highlight and every loss. If jewellery accompanies us every step of the way, how can we use it to improve our quality of life?


The technical jury of New Traditional Jewellery (NTJ) has selected the theme “CONFRONTATIONS” for the 2014 design contest and exhibition.

Confrontations may carry different meanings: on a grand scale (climate changes, distribution of wealth, waste management, for example) or in a private inner dialogue: there is a lot we are confronted with. Confrontations are often hard to ignore and force you to have an opinion. Some of them may even be life-changing.

Confrontations also mean coming to grips with problematic situations, tackling a problem head-on (taking the bull by the horns) and facing the music. It's a word commonly used in sports, politics, psychology and war.
This is by no means a complete inventory of the ways 'CONFRONTATIONS' can be understood. We are just scratching the surface; it's up to you to confront us with your interpretation.

What is confronting to you? What is it you want to confront us with? So here's the challenge: translate your take on 'CONFRONTATIONS' into jewellery design.
As in all prior editions of New Traditional Jewellery, we ask contemporary professional jewellery designers to base their design on an inspirational source. This source of inspiration can range from ethnographic jewellery to personal history or current events and trends with relevance to CONFRONTATIONS.
On behalf of the technical jury, the executive committee of the jury wishes all participants much inspiration and success!
