Curated by jewellery designer and maker Dr. Susan Cohn, the exhibition offers a survey of contemporary jewellery presented through a number of themes: Worn Out - celebrating the experience of wearing jewellery, Linking Links - looking at the ways in which meaning and narratives are expressed in jewellery and A Fine Line - offering insights into the origins of contemporary jewellery today, highlighting key instigators of the contemporary jewellery movement."
