100 Jewels by 100 Women
This June, the residents of Dundee City Centre's Double Door Studios will hold an exhibition named '100 Jewels by 100 Women', celebrating the achievements of craftswomen in our society.
The exhibition will feature one item of jewellery from each of the one hundred invited artists; women who have lived, studied and/or worked in Dundee during their careers. Among the broad list of participants is a variety of Duncan of Jordanstone tutors and alumni from over three decades. One of the graduates taking part in the exhibition, Naomi Smith, also starred in the recent TV show 'All That Glitters'. The pieces on show not only embody individual stories of the women who created them, but also represent the monumental contribution to the industry from practicing female jewellers.
Jewellery on show will range from colourful contemporary pieces made from alternative materials to stone set pieces in precious metals. A variety of techniques and materials have been used to create the 100 pieces of jewellery - from traditional silversmithing methods in precious metals to 3D printing and unconventional techniques, the exhibition will exhibit examples from across the jewellery spectrum.
'100 Jewels by 100 Women' was first conceived to be held during Women's History Month in March and to coincide with Dundee Women's Festival. When the recent lockdown restrictions came into place at the start of the year, it was decided to move the exhibition to a time when people could visit. Project coordinator ieva jankovska said: During this really difficult time for everyone we feel it's even more important than ever to be able to open our doors and introduce visitors to all these wonderful makers who have come through Dundee. We look forward to bringing together such a diverse display of contemporary jewellery and hope the record of this project will have a lasting positive impact for the Dundee design scene and beyond.
Opening Hours:- Wed and Thur 12-6pm, Fri 10am-6pm, Sat 10am-6pm (no booking required), Sun 12- 4pm.
