Intro
This book does not pretend to show an exhaustive history of the beginnings of contemporary jewelery in Catalonia, but rather to show that, in the profound transformations experienced by the world of jewelery in our country during the second half of the 20th century, a group of women, the first to make their way into a profession that until then was forbidden to them, in a particular space that, like so many others, had been almost exclusively male.
 
The transformation of jewellery from the 1960s was characterised by a number of aspects. First, the significant number of women joining the industry, a fact that has previously been insufficiently emphasised. Second, the creation of schools or school departments specially devoted to jewellery as an area of creativity. Third, the appearance of new groups and associations of jewellers who were proponents of this new idea of jewellery. And fourth, the emergence of art galleries specifically dedicated to jewellery. All this took place all over Europe, particularly in Germany, the Netherlands and England, as well as in Catalonia, with close links to international events.

A huge new development was the large presence of female creators as, in spite of Catalonia’s great jewellery tradition, we know of almost no female jewellers in the country before that time. The exhibition contains a representative selection of jewellery by Montserrat Guardiola, Carmen Zulueta, Teresa Capella, Anna Font, Teresa Casanovas, Chelo Sastre, Margarita Kirchner, Ángeles López Antei, Marta Breis and Núria Matabosch, ten women preceded by two pioneers, Mariona Lluch and Ninon Collett, a Swiss-born artist based in Barcelona who is ​​considered Catalonia’s first female jeweller. Creators of unique pieces or parts of series, or both, somewhere between experimentation, art and design.
