Intro
ALCHEMISTS, the latest jewellery exhibition to be curated at New Brewery Arts, sets out to investigate and present the work of contemporary jewellers who take precious or unexpected materials and transform them into unusual and desirable jewellery.
Jewellers are not defined by traditional materials and today’s makers are constantly pushing the boundaries of what jewellery can be. Be it big and bold or pale and subtle, the innovative world of studio jewellery will delight and challenge in equal measure often making us re examine our pre conceptions of what jewellery means.
The notion of using precious and non-precious materials within jewellery is hardly new, but this show seeks to highlight the breadth of approaches and range of materials used by today’s makers when exploring the adornment of the body. 

New Brewery Arts is proud to present the work of over 25 artists. We are delighted to be welcoming internationally renowned and award winning contemporary jewellers for the first time to Cirencester as well as showcasing the fresh talent of new makers just stepping out in their careers.
