Intro

“During my time in Sweden, I was affected and aware of a silence that seemed continually present in social situations and interactions. There is a kind of social regard or social containment that seems entrenched in the Swedish culture. Yet, I believe, some of the most provocative jewelry is coming out of this climate. The jewelers that I am representing are making work that is in no way quiet. It is quite the opposite. The artists involved are capitalizing on jewelry’s inherent role as a social catalyst and allowing for difficult conversations to be bridged in ways that would otherwise not occur person to person.” -- 

Curator, Tracy Steepy
