Exhibition of contemporary jewellery to feature 120 designers.
The annual Dazzle exhibition has returned to Manchester and London this month, showcasing work from 120 designers from 22 countries.
The consumer-facing showcases at Manchester Art Gallery and London’s Oxo Tower will run until early January, with more than 6,000 pieces of designers’ work available to buy.
This year marks the 32nd year of Dazzle, which describes itself as an "annual barometer for all that’s happening in contemporary jewellery design".
Products on offer include jewellery made using buttons, acrylic, amethysts, bog oak, 22ct gold and textiles, with designs inspired by African tribal jewellery, Scottish coastal debris and Korean architecture.
This year’s Dazzle at the Oxo Tower in London will include work by Jane Adam, John Field, Alan Ardiff, Paul Finch and Josef Koppman; while the Manchester Dazzle will run across two spaces at the City Gallery, featuring designers Jane Adams, Gail Klevan, Sue Gregor and Sarah Packington, Nicola Becci and Becky Crow.
Dazzle at the Oxo Tower will run until January 5 2014, with the Manchester edition open until January 11 2014.
