Not Too Precious explores inspirational work by 25 international jewellers using materials for their expressive potential rather than for their intrinsic value. Radical artist jewellers of the late 1960s and 70s vigorously rejected the idea that jewellery should be considered ‘precious’ simply because of the materials of which it was made. Today, the use of a huge variety of materials in jewellery is far more accepted, but economic pressures are putting that freedom of artistic expression at potential risk as people revert to traditionally ‘valuable’ materials for ‘safety’. Not Too Precious challenges preconceptions about ‘non-precious’ materials by encouraging us to consider ‘accrued value': what talented makers bring to their work through their ideas and skill.

The selected artists, who currently work in the UK, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, create innovative, skilfully-made jewellery that is insightful and culturally resonant. Sometimes poignant, sometimes witty, their work communicates at many levels. It is above all honest and – for want of a better term – not too precious.

Not too preciousということで今回制作した「cut body ring」にはBrass

(真鍮)を使用しましたが、重さを気にせず作れたのでとても力強くて

より彫刻的な作品に仕上がり、Brass(真鍮)に目覚めそうな予感...とい

うよりもジュエリーを作り始めた頃に銀が勿体なくて良く真鍮を鋳造し

リングを作っていた事を思い出してとても新鮮な気分になりました。
