Bright/Light at Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery
Until 31st January

Since 1996 this leading Contemporary Jewellery Gallery has been set within Salts Mill in West Yorkshire, home to the world’s largest collection of work by David Hockney. Open daily, it showcases a wide selection of jewellery and metal smithing by over 70 makers, complemented by major exhibitions featuring top international jewellery artists as well as the cream of British talent.
Much of the work on show pushes and blurs the boundaries between art, jewellery design and fashion, resulting in jewellery that is, perhaps, best described as wearable art. Pieces are often created using a surprising range of materials and techniques. But the Gallery is also known for its huge choice of beautifully handcrafted, stylish pieces that are eminently wearable - yet all unique.
Bright/Light is a showcase of work by ten sparkling new graduates and two highly talented ‘nearly new’ designers - both from the prestigious Masters course at London’s Royal College of Art.
Alongside Bright/Light there’s a further dash of dramatic glamour with a Black & Gold showcase; four gorgeous collections of eminently wearable jewellery created from inky jet and black silver with golden highlights.
