The premise is simple: Pore over the jewelry you own, select your current favorite or a piece you consider especially noteworthy, send in a photo to share with readers, and tell us why you selected it. This is the second installment in this series (check out the first one here). For this edition, we invited only AJF members to contribute. The only criteria were that they must own the piece and that it must have been made by someone other than themselves. Thank you to everyone who contributed! We couldn’t do it without you. The response was so overwhelming that we had to split this edition in two parts—so check in next Monday for Part 2!
This series aims to offer some insight into what each of you think is important in the field. We also believe it will expose more contemporary artists to the community and beyond.
Someone once said that one is a purchase, two’s a coincidence, and three’s a collection. Maybe you define yourself in relation to jewelry—as maker, collector, enthusiast, gallerist, curator—or maybe you don’t, but you almost certainly own a number of pieces of jewelry. So which piece do you like best in your collection, and why?
