The exhibition establishes the connections between the East and West. Despite the distance, the show reveals how sometimes we're close to the distant ones and how jewellery makes this bridge between continents.

The exhibition brings together artist works from China and the West. While some of the Chinese artists were influenced by the West because they received their education in jewelry there, the Western artists’ works also have or could be seen to have a relation to China. This has sometimes been intended by the artists and sometimes not. The exhibition shows that though being from different cultures and countries we are still related.
