Dazzle jewellery pieces

Dazzle

Dazzle returns for the annual Christmas selling exhibition of jewellery, silversmithing and printmaking.

The largest show of its kind in Europe, Dazzle is remarkable for the variety of materials on show beyond the usual precious metals and stones. This year, they include wood, paper, plastics and even Whitby jet – Jacqueline Cullen is the world’s leading exponent of this material. Heather Woof has a totally new take on the refractory metal titanium that is causing a sensation among jewellery collectors. Demi Wolfe-Power uses taxidermy skills with many of her pieces and Grace Girvan is well known for scouring Scottish beaches for the constituent parts of her work.

Dazzle has been drawing collectors, artists and members of the public to the National every Christmas since 1981. The balance of the new and innovative with more traditional techniques makes the exhibition a must-see for lovers of designer jewellery.

All items are for sale.
