From intimate pieces to large scale works, the contemporary jewellery in this exhibition explores the act of making and how jewellery is worn on the body, telling stories that start with the artist and continue through the life of the object as a worn and viewed item, creating new resonances with owners into the future.

Spanning a wide range of materials, techniques and meanings, the works on display are playful, intricate, conceptual, personal and political. The artists also engage with themes of place, sustainability in materials and identity.

Artists featured: Liam Benson | Julie Byfield | Helena Bogucki | Zoe Brand | Maree Clarke | Jess Dare | Anna Davern | Bin Dixon-Ward | Sian Edwards | Emma Fielden | Lola Greeno | Pennie Jagiello | Bridget Kennedy | Inari Kiuru | Grace Lillian Lee | Vicki Mason | Claire McArdle | Tiffany Parbs | Blanche Tilden | Catherine Truman | Manon Van Kouswijk | Zoe Veness

Access: This exhibition has a clear path of travel throughout the venue with an accessible toilet. A full gallery Access statement is available to download from the ADC website.
