Recently I have many doubts about the contemporary jewellery scene, there are many jewellery makers and a small group of collectors. Most jewellers do need side jobs to make a living, even known ones. Sometimes I feel like there is a standard of how contemporary jewellery should look like, generated through galleries, platforms and museums, but most likely the scene has to widen up to reach out to new people and new markets.
