Joya: My Visit (Part One)

Last week I visited Joya, the contemporary jewelry fair in Barcelona.  The photographs I show you serve as testament to the hours I shared with creative people who love what they do.
La setmana passada vaig visitar Joya, la fira de joieria contemporània de Barcelona i les fotografies que us presento volen ser el testimoni d’unes hores que vaig compartir amb persones creatives que estimen la seva feina.

Every year I anticipate these encounters with hopes to see in person new jewelry methods and to hold in my hands the jewels I like.  I anticipate meeting friends, some of whom I know via the internet.  In this edition of the fair, there were more jewelers and the layout of the space facilitated the tour. I think the quality of works and successful visitor attendance both guarantee the continuity of this annual destination that has become indispensable for many of us.

Cada any espero aquestes dates amb la il·lusió de veure en persona noves propostes de joieria i poder tenir a les mans aquelles joies que m’agraden, així com de trobar-me amb amics, alguns d’ells coneguts de la xarxa. En aquesta edició de la fira hi han participat més joiers i la distribució que s’ha fet de l’espai facilitava el recorregut. La qualitat dels treballs i l’èxit de visitants crec que garanteixen la continuitat d’aquesta cita anual que ja se’ns fa imprescindible a molts.

    I really like the way the show is set up. Each person has the same display table. So the work really shines. Here in the US at the shows some of the booths are so extravagant and expensive looking, that they take away from the work.

    Thanks for sharing the great photos and links to the artists.
