Dazzle Contemporary Jewellery Exhibitions is dedicated to showing the best of contemporary designer jewellery. They organise two exhibitions a year in Edinburgh and London showing work in a wide range of materials from gold and silver to paper and plastics. They are committed to showing young makers at the point of graduation alongside internationally renowned designers.
Originally established in 1912 by the 4th Marquess of Bute, Dovecot’s founding weavers John Glassbrook and Gordon Berry came from William Morris’ Merton Abbey Workshops.
Their ethos of arts and crafts ideals and weaving skills have been passed on to generations of Dovecot Apprentices to the present day. Dovecot’s Master Weavers continue to collaborate with artists and designers on tapestry projects and commissions ensuring that the skill of tapestry weaving remains vibrant in the 21st Century.
The light and airy gallery upstairs will be filled with our usual mix of established and new designers, showing the best of contemporary jewellery in a huge variety of materials.
