Modern Life at the Gill Wing Gallery is a new exhibition featuring work by 6 jewellers who investigate the theme Modern Life in their work in unique and interesting ways. The gallery explains: “Modern Life for 2018 is about appreciating what already exists; the imperfect, the mundane. Being thankful for your home, wherever it may be, because you have one. Being thankful rather than guilty for your bad habits because you have the freedom to indulge them. Finding beauty and humour in everyday situations.”
The jewellers featured are Jonathan Boyd, Jo Garner, Corrina Goutos, Akiko Kurihara, Christoph Ziegler and Holly O’Hanlon, one of our recent graduates.
Fixing a moment forever with a golden pin, Holly’s unique jewellery compositions draw attention to the overlooked and mundane details of our surroundings which we often miss on our daily journeys. Her assembled slate and steel layers are textured and marked to evoke the patterns building up from signs and posters being pasted, torn and weather worn. Their messages and information was time sensitive, replaced, faded and disintegrating, but she makes these remaining traces permanent and precious using solid gold staples and hand-enameled silver drawing pins to fasten them in place. “Framing the unseen and relocating it on the body, giving a new mantle to the unseen and unappreciated.”
The exhibition runs from 13th January to the 28th February at Gill Wing Jewellery, 182 Upper Street, Islington, N1 1RQ. For more information visit: http://www.gillwingjewellery.co.uk/blog/2017/12/19/modern-life

Following on from winning the Cross-border Design Contest in March earlier this year, Anna Tuhus, a recent BA Jewellery Design graduate is presenting her work at the Ludwig Forum in Aachen, Germany as part of the LuForm exhibition. She is showcasing her winning work at the exhibition, floor tiles inspired by Limburg, the southernmost province of the Netherlands’ rich mining history. The design is a comment on the idea of bridging borders: the different patterns are inspired by the history of the province of Limburg as a century-old trade center. The cherry-wood symbolizes the areas fruit cultivation, the charcoal inlays represent the coal industry. The production in turn makes use of modern technologies by using laser cutting to create the floral patterns.
