This year the me of SIERAD Art Fair is ‘True Colours’, literally meaning ‘real colours’, but also ‘showing your colours’, showing your true nature. It was the starting point for the design contest New Tradicional Jewellery as well. An inspiring assignment for 300 international jewellery designers.
Entries were received from 34 countries, amongst which Finland, Iraq, Australia and Chile. The member s of the jury, being a design teacher, a jewellery designer, an academic, a curator and a fashion designer, have judged the entries each from their own background.
New Tradicional Jewellery is a bridge between new and old, historical and/or ethnographic jewellery. The double meanin g of the theme ‘True Colours’ can clearly be seen in the exuberant use of colour, but also in an enormous symbolism and ethnic diversity. According to the jury the over all picture is a beautiful reﬂection of contemporary jewellery design. 56 entries have been nominated which will be displayed on SIERAAD Art Fair. From these, 3 winners have been selected, all of the makers active as professional jewellery designer. Moreover, two students will receive a prize. The winners (1 from Holland) will be announced by Aziz Bekkaoui (member of the jury) and mrs. Maya Meijer and will be honoured during the ofcial opening of SIERAAD Art Fair on Thursday, November 4 th at 17.00 hours.
