Exhibition Dates: 2 November 2020 to 2 January 2021

Venue; Craft NI Gallery, 115 – 119 Royal Avenue, Belfast, BT1 1FF.

The exhibition features over 50 variations on the idea of a brooch, with versions in both precious and non-precious materials. Traditionally set stones contrast with re-purposed vintage tins and toys, precision geometry meets abstract forms. Gold, silver and gemstones sit alongside found objects in unexpected interpretations that demonstrate technical accomplishment, innovation and creativity.

Exhibitors; Abbie Dixon, Angela Davison, Anne Earls Boylan, Cameron and Breen, CĂ©line Traynor, Clodagh Molloy, Claire Mooney, Diane Sutherland, Eddie J Doherty, Egle Banyte, Heather McFadden, Jackie McMaster, Jill Graham, Lotus de Wit, Maureen McGhee, Natasha Rollinson, Nicola Moran, Robyn Galway, Rosie Elwood, Shannon McShane, Sharon Adams, Stuart Cairns, Tara Campbell.
