Eight contemporary British jewellers have come together to exhibit at the 11th edition of the prestigious SIERAAD International Jewellery Art Fair in Amsterdam from 1st – 4th November. Each with our own style, voice and specialism, Collect_ive aims to promote British art jewellery to a wider audience. We are Farrah Al-Dujaili, Laura Bradshaw-Heap, Melanie Codarin, Katie Lees, Yu-Ping Lin, Grace Page, Natalie Smith and Anna Wales.Together we use a variety of mediums and subjects within our practices to question assumptions about jewellery itself and to raise questions and communicate thoughts about the world around us. From transient jewellery created in sugar evocative of apocalyptic landscapes, to visually powerful felt and silver jewellery pieces that are pleasingly tactile, to tongue-in-cheek miracle cures saving the world one piece of jewellery at a time!See More

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for fine craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through July 15, 2012.
Please look around and add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions. Crafthaus is a participatory sport!
Please note that ALL images sent to the website editor are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect!
If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via email@example.com anytime, I will do my best to be of help.
I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.
