I recently came across an interesting group of three East London based makers who form root 5, a cooperative whose intention it is to "bring together the innovative, the playful and the maverick; multi-faceted body-orientated projects located outside the mainstream." Goal of the group is to organize pop-up galleries that "support work by artists and designers that have the body and adornment (though not necessarily the adorned body) as a concern and focus."

For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not.But your taste, the thing that got you into the…Continue

Kevin's last sentence really struck me: "The world needs contemporary jewellery."
Really? In what way?
