In collaboration with CODA Museum, Ellen Maurer-Zilioli made Private Confessions, an exhibition that brings together the drawings and jewellery of more than 36 visual artists in a unique way. Private Confessions is staged in CODA Museum from 18 September 2016 to 8 January 2017 inclusive.

SIERAAD Art Fair (SAF) is a 4-day fair in Amsterdam, which will host a selection of international jewellery designers. SAF is the only platform in the Netherlands where professional contemporary jewellery designers from home and abroad sell their work directly and in person. To add lustre to this edition of SAF there will be some special events and striking presentations.
UNPRECEDENTED SPLENDOUR at SIERAAD.
SIERAAD Art Fair will celebrate its 15th anniversary in November with an exceptional exhibition. The fair will feature a special selection from the largest ethnological jewellery collection in Holland. It is the outcome of an inspiring collaboration with the Amsterdam Tropenmuseum, the Ethnological Rijksmuseum in Leiden and the Africa Museum in Berg en Dal. At a fair where the visitor is surrounded by prominent international contemporary design, occasionally featuring very futuristic touches, this anniversary they choose to go back to the roots: to the ethnology of jewellery. Ethnological jewellery originates from and is connected with all possible milestones in life, with traditions, ancestor worship and the use as amulet, talisman and medicine. Jewellery is the bearer of symbols and wearable stories with a fascinating symbolic language.
