Impressions: or jewellery that transmits visions of a culture from a group of artists that works
for the body poetically and functionally.

This exhibition attempts to show in an eclectic way what is currently being made in the field
of jewellery in Portugal. Authors of three generations and coming from different backgrounds
are presented under five thematic groups illustrated by five photographs: – Listening, Drawing,
Enhancing, Trusting and Remembering draw the eye and guide the mind of the viewer,
offering an understanding of the pieces and how they may be used.
Non-traditional materials and experimental techniques can be seen underpinned by strong
technical and craft skills.
