Intro
Jewelry events should promote the benefits of peace – and, at the same time, offer their unconditional solidarity to the victims of aggression. If fairs and 'weeks' fail to respond to the challenges born on 24 February 2022, then they may soon find out that they have become obsolete, if not meaningless.
 
Applied arts and crafts, disciplines focusing on decorative and useful objects, are ambassadors of peace. We become aware of it when it is only too late.

China and ceramics remind us of the dinner parties we celebrated with friends; dresses and decorations of the special events we attended; jewelry of our life's milestones and family traditions. Collected and loved objects are more than personal, intimate treasures: they are also silent witnesses of the Zeitgeist of our times and elements of our own identity. War turns objects, memories, and lives into ashes.

Art can build bridges even between 'enemy' countries and can assist the purposes of diplomacy even when negotiations seem futile. Art can also emphasize the duty of each citizen to defend their country and values when action is needed. In Desastres de la Guerra, the Spanish painter Francisco de Goya etched the invaders' atrocities, turning their crimes against humanity into an eternal stigma for the 19th-century European order.

SMCK Magazine's "War and Peace" issue is dedicated to our fellow artists from Ukraine. They manifest through their videos, statements, and jewelry their country's tragedy, but also their commitment to its rich heritage and their will for themselves, and their culture, to survive.
