Picture the scene: an art gallery, delicious cappuccino and the company of two delightful ladies, Isa Schwartz (Schwartz Jewellers) and Megan Amy Kidd (In Toto Gallery). What better way than to spend a few hours discussing the upcoming 'Translations: Art into Jewellery' exhibition to be held at In Toto Gallery on Thursday night 12th of April. The exhibition will run until the 8th of May.
"The idea for this exhibition, which explores the crossover of art into jewellery, came about during a conversation I had with my mother, Gail Schwartz. Why don’t we ask ten top South African artists to collaborate with Schwartz Jewellers to create a collection of artist-designed jewellery pieces? The idea stuck, and here we are. I am delighted at the unique range of artist-designed jewellery pieces that resulted. Each piece is the synthesis of individual artistic genius and the know-how that epitomises Schwartz Jewellers." -Isa Schwartz
