Delicate Like Iron - Jewellery from a private collection

Parallel exhibition

The three jewellery classes at the Vocational College for Design, Jewellery and Utensils at Pforzheim’s Goldsmithing School explored »the phenomenon of jewellery« from several different perspectives. Their jewellery creations are themed around a dialogue of cultures, as well as around the allure of distant places, and the question of what feels foreign and far away to us, yet is so near.
