Intro
When speaking about contemporary and conceptual jewellery, each piece is like a real story, which encourages dialogue and requires a deeper understanding. Jewellery pieces - or short stories - generate awakening emotions and special reality that exceeds our wildest expectations.

Absolute emotional understanding. These stories pass an intellectual message to both a spectator and a wearer. The exhibition brings together jewellery artists from Latvia and abroad.
Exhibition visitors will have an opportunity to view and purchase different “short stories”. First, all pieces of jewellery have their signature technical motion, unique evidence of author’s ideas. These stories are never-ending creations of fantasy. Secondly, they are commercial pieces that are replicated and have a commercial aspect. Thirdly, pieces of jewellery can be tiny objects, which, like customised tools, express an idea.
However, all above mentioned has no value. What matters is the connection between the piece and the spectator, between the piece and the wearer.
French conceptual jewellery artist Emmanuel Lacoste once said, Among all types of artistic creation, there is one essential thing that sets jewellery apart: its direct physical contact with the body.
