Electrum and CAA (Contemporary Applied Arts), London

The first time I visited Electrum Gallery was seven years ago when I was fascinated with the quantity and variety of jewelers who showed their pieces there. At this visit I saw that they had made renovations – the lower floor is no longer open to the public and the number of exhibitors is reduced. Electrum, which continues to dedicate itself to contemporary jewelry, has become a part of CAA (Contemporary Applied Arts), an organization created to promote the best in contemporary British craft.

Vaig visitar la galeria Electrum per primer cop fa set anys i em va fascinar la quantitat i varietat de joiers que hi mostraven les seves peces. Ara han fet reformes, el soterrani ja no és obert al públic i s’ha reduit el nombre d’expositors. Electrum, que continua dedicant-se exclusivament a la joieria contemporània, ha passat a formar part de CAA (Contemporary Applied Arts), una organització creada per promocionar el millor de les arts aplicades britàniques.

At the CAA Gallery you can visit exhibitions from different disciplines and there is a permanent space for contemporary jewelry that is restocked approximately every six months.

A la galeria CAA s’hi fan exposicions de les diferents disciplines i hi ha una part dedicada a la joieria contemporània que es va renovant aproximadament cada sis mesos.

In Electrum‘s shop window I saw jewels by Rita Back, Lina Peterson, Polly Wales, Jane Adam, Sarah Lindsay and Karen Bartlett.
