Unexpected Pleasures celebrates the work of contemporary jewellers who have challenged the conventions of traditional jewellery design.
Drawing on work from across the globe, the exhibition explores how the contemporary jewellery movement, which began in the late 1970s, saw a radical rethinking of jewellery and its social context.
Curated by jewellery designer and maker Dr Susan Cohn, this exhibition features more than 130 jewellers, including the avant-garde designs of Alexander Calder, Gijs Bakker's conceptual adornments and Dorothea Pruhl's delicate abstract pieces.
