Continental Guilt
We may not have the Euro yet, but at least we can still buy the best in European jewellery
Set in Salts Mill, the elegant Victorian textile mill in Saltaire, Kath Libbert established her gallery in 1996 to exhibit the best in innovative and contemporary jewellery. As well as the regular designers, this month at the gallery there is a chance to see the latest exhibition: Euromix, an exhibition of contemporary work put on show by several European designers.
Described as "miniature masterpieces" the collection of jewellery uses many media, including pieces made out of paper, lace and embroidery. The designs also incorporate more traditional uses of several metals including pewter, copper and brass.
The Spanish jeweller Lalli Mensa has provided items that are especially feminine with delicate pieces incorporating silver work with pearls and coral flowers. Bolder designs include use of brightly coloured rubber by the German designer Claudia Ruehl and coiled paper neck and arm pieces by Nel Linssen.
The exhibition has something to appeal to everyone's taste in jewellery in what is promised to be an eclectic and tactile show bringing together some of Europe's top designers.
