Intro
Join us at Slovenian Jewelry Week 2024, where jewelry will conjure up emotions and feelings in all its diversity. Each piece of jewelry carries a story that intertwines with our own, creating an emotional bond between the wearer and the artist. That is why the theme of this year's event is sensations, which will take us through the past, the present, and the future and encourage us to reflect on the feelings that jewelry evokes.
Slovenian Jewelry Week 2024 will take place for the third consecutive year, from 9 to 20 May 2024, with exhibitions in Ljubljana, Izola, and Slovenj Gradec. A special novelty of this year's event is the central venue at the Creative Centre ROG in Ljubljana, where there will also be a sales exhibition. In addition to the 140 or so local and international jewelry designers competing for the jury's awards, the event will also feature design collectives or galleries and two universities.

A jury of experts selected the participants in the individual exhibitions. It will also select this year's winners from among the participants. The jury consists of Anastasia Young (GB), Petra Bole, Olga Košica, Martina Lončar, Désirée Kolarec and Rok Marinšek.

Slovenian Jewelry Week is not just a gathering of creators - it is also a celebration of culture, innovation, sustainability, and the richness of global and Slovenian design creativity.

You are invited to join in the world of all the sensations that jewelry evokes!
