For the first time Ubi Gallery organizes the TopYoung Award for Asian jewellery graduates. Amazed by the submissions of 74 students, a jury from Beijing, Taipei and Tokyo (Machtelt Schelling, Yu- Chun Chen of Mano Gallery, Ohchi Chitose from O-Gallery) selected the 13 best candidates.

You can find inflatable brooches; jewellery made by foam particles; pieces inspired by architecture, some very personal portraits and the example of the bare essence of a pin. Jewellery designers are famous for their innovative use of material and their ability to make small wearable sculptures. If you want to see what is going on in this new discipline – you can find a nice overview in Ubi Gallery. With great thanks to all the applicants, the jury and the universities, we like to present the selection of pieces in the exhibition and this small catalogue. We hope to start an amazing and inspiring tradition.
