Tinsel Gallery is based in Johannesburg, and we are the only gallery in South Africa that exclusively represents the work of our local contemporary jewellers. We are dedicated to championing South African work and growing the audience for this kind of jewellery both at home and abroad. As the first contemporary jewellery gallery from the African continent to be invited to exhibit at Frame, we are extremely proud to present this collection of new work from some of South Africa’s best artists in the field: it is the first time we are showing pieces by our artists to an international audience. We will be presenting brand new work by 13 of our top contemporary jewellers.
 
The pieces shown here by our thirteen chosen jewellers all exhibit an exuberance and experimental approach to materials and techniques, as well as a conceptual grappling with issues of identity, land and power that are at once universal and rooted in our unique historical context. Whilst unquestionably individual expressions, the works are all connected by a shared experience of growing up and living in South Africa. We hope that by showing them in Munich, one of the most prestigious locations in the contemporary jewellery universe, for the first time, we are situating our local practice within the broader field, and thereby contributing to the discourse.
