Last year - knowing this was probably exceeding our authorities - we decided to hand out six Jewellery Nobel Prizes. Since we have not become that much more modest, and since there are so many ground breaking jewellery achievements to choose from, we will present six new this year. 
Jewellery Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2011: Tanel Veenre

Necklace: Tanel Veenre, Winds of Mars 2011, 
Fishing floats, wood, silver, cosmic dust.

With materials like cosmic dust, Seahorses and Fishing floats you never know what is next from Mr. Veenre. Like a magician, he transforms both ordinary and extraordinary objects into treasures from another world. Sometimes it makes us wonder if he has changed the chemical structure of his materials.

Jewellery Nobel Prize in Physics: Eleanor Bolton

Necklace: Eleanor Bolton
, Knotted Coiled Rope 2010 
Unbleached cotton rope and yarn.

Eleanor Bolton is tying together all the loose ends. Making it all make sense. Putting together a piece out of an entangled hank of ideas and visions might seam easy seeing the result. But all jewellers know this is certainly not the case.

Jewellery Nobel Prize in Literature 2011: Constanze Schreiber

Necklace: Constanze Schreiber, Bridle for a Teapot 2011 
According to teapot.

Built on a historic ground Schreiber create jewellery telling us the ancient jewellery stories with a modern jewellery language.
In my works, I am searching for a contemporary continuation of traditional jewellery pieces.

Jewellery Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine: Ruudt Peters

Brooch: Ruudt Peters
, Scapula 2011
 Polyurethan, silver.

For investigating, the human body in general and particularly the famous body of Jesus. Mr Peters has made revolutionary progress trying to answer the question what do you find between body and spirit?

Jewellery Nobel Peace (Piece) prize 2011: ATTA Gallery, Bangkok Thailand

ATTA Gallery opened in 2010 and is the first gallery specializes in art and contemporary jewelry in Thailand. ATTA Gallery exhibits jewellery in order to promote it to a wider public both locally and internationally.
Connecting with the klimt02 community and sharing knowledge is an important step in order to strength the contemporary jewellery scene. ATTA Gallery makes our net larger and the globe smaller.

We would like to say congratulations to a job very well done to the winners and to the rest of you – thank you for making the decision very hard.
