Not Only Decoration at the Vienna Jewelry Days
For the frst time in Vienna “NOD – not only decoration” will show that jewelry can be more than just an aesthetic for the body. Not Only Decoration, a global collective of makers who create pieces that contest and discuss ethical consciousness across many topics from environmental to social, was founded by artists Stephie Morawetz from Austria and Laura Jack from Australia. They believe that jewelry has always been and will always have the potential to be more than just decoration, it has the capacity to convey deeper meaning, and to infuence. This can be seen in their own personal works; A Drop of Black Gold (Stephie) and Does the Carpet Match the Drapes (Laura) that will form part of the collective exhibit.
Join “Nod” and “Alja&friends” at any and all of our events and see for yourself that jewellery can be more than decoration.
