Jewelry Selection Exhibition VDW 2021

As part of Venice Design Week 2021, the DAZZLE ME! jewelry exhibition opened on September 30 at the Ca' Pisani Design Hotel in Venice.

Dazzle me! was the theme of Venice Design Week Jewelry Selection 2021. The competition is in its eighth edition and every year contemporary jewelry designers develop their ideas by confronting internationally.
The theme was a clear exhortation, with an exclamation point, to create a jewel that could surprise and capture the attention of the viewer. It represented a challenge to play with light, colors, reflections from a mirror and with everything that can amaze the observer.
Of the hundreds of projects belonging to 71 artists who sent their works from all over the world, 16 were those that the jury felt had best interpreted and told the values through their jewel.
