Further details will be announced soon.

Sophie Hanagarth (Lausanne, Switzerland 1968) studied goldsmithing and jewellery in Switzerland from 1988 - 1995. She has been teaching at l’Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Genève, and she is teaching at l’Ecole de l’AFEDAP in Paris and since 2002 at l’Ecole Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg (today called HEAR, Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin). She lives in Paris. Sophie Hanagarth combines in her jewellery strong concepts, humour and surrealism with highly skilled craftsmanship. Her last works are radical ornaments conceived in forged iron.

Since 1980 the Françoise van den Bosch Award is awarded every two years to an (international) jewellery artist whose work is of outstanding quality and appeals to younger generations and the audience. The Award is granted by the Françoise van den Bosch Foundation and involves an amount of money and the acquisition of a piece of jewellery by the award winner.

The private Foundation, initiated by friends and family of jewellery designer Françoise van den Bosch (1944-1977), started in 1980 after her sudden death. It is the aim of the

Foundation to stimulate international jewellery.
