Women & Jewelry: A Contemporary Perspective
Craft in America is delighted to host these four short films Women and Jewelry : a contemporary perspective created by UK modern jewelry curator Amanda Game in collaboration with artist filmmaker Matt Hulse during the 2020 pandemic lockdown. These were first aired on London’s Goldsmiths’ Company Goldsmiths Fair 2020 microsite last autumn.
In discussion with Amanda, we felt it would be interesting to share them as a guest blog on our website in the spirit of international exchange and they touch on designers, collections and ideas that have strong links to the field of jewelry here in America.
