Intro
As the term 'Handarbeit' evokes the image of knitting ladies or men doing woodwork, we integrated 'do-it-yourself' instructables and step-by-step instructions into this years presentation.
As the term 'Handarbeit' evokes the image of knitting ladies or men doing woodwork, we integrated 'do-it-yourself' instructables and step-by-step instructions into this years presentation. Personal notes, drawings, ideas and sketches from 8 individual makers accompany the original work  8 different necklaces. Whereas in preindustrial times a manual served to exactly reproduce an object, people are now dared to copy a so called one-off, the personal handwriting and idea of the maker. 

For the fourth time in a row a group of jewellery artists linked to the city of Amsterdam which seems relativly 'north'  teamed up to do a project in the context of Schmuck 08 in Munich.
