Exhibition of jewellery inspired by butterflies and created by international artists at the Granollers Natural History Museum
An exhibition of jewellery symbolizing the essence of butterflies as a metaphor for life created by 101 jewellers.

The origins of this exhibition go back over a year to the exhibition of work by 59 artists curated by the internationally known Dutch jeweller, Philip Sajet, organized by Grego García and Blai Carda in the contemporary jewelery gallery’s Amaranto Joies in Barcelona to mark tenth anniversary.

The exhibition on show in Granollers includes all the original pieces and others by a further 50 artists from the world’s five continents, some well known, others just beginning, but all reflecting modern tendencies in contemporary jewellery. Two local artists, Ana Toledo and Jordi Sànchez, from the studio Tasmania in Granollers also have work on show. Visitors will be able to admire all the pieces created by these artists, as well as photographs by local photographers Xavier Solanas and Griselda Escrigas of the over 100 people who acted as non-professional models for this exhibition.

The exhibition Papallona/Mariposa/Butterfly. A metaphor for life in Jewellery is open until March and would not have been possible without the support of the Natural History Museum’s benefactors, the Jonch Sampere family. The exhibition’s catalogue is in Catalan, Spanish and English and includes texts by Philip Sajet and Grego Garcíia, and by Julia Wild, historian and lecturer from Trier University of Applied Sciences, Department for Gemstones and Jewellery in the town of Idar-Oberstein.
