Eccentri:city will showcase a collection of collaborative, one-­off jewellery inspired by the City of Edinburgh. The collection, which has never been seen before, will reveal the jewellers' favourite places in and around the city and their personal responses to the different locations. Demonstrating originality and thoughtfulness their work promises to offer a unique glimpse of contemporary jewellery design emerging from Edinburgh today and as its name suggests Eccentri:city will be no ordinary show.

Among the 17 jewellers taking part is Rhona Hogg who uses aerial views, surface textures and what's hidden under the microscope as inspiration for her beautifully urban creations;; whereas, Claire Pouget Wright's designs playfully explore colour, texture and pattern through quirkily shaped squares of all sizes. All this and more will be available to enjoy and purchase for the duration of the exhibition.


The opening of Eccentri:city will take place Friday 13th July, 6.30-­9.30pm.

 ACJ Edinburgh are delighted to have the support Emma Walker, CEO of Craft Scotland, who will be speaking at the event.

Exhibition opening times: Mon-Fri 10-6, Sat 11-5, Sun 11-4
