Simply put, jewellery of the 1960s and ’70s was revolutionary. If the 1950s were demure and controlled, the 1960s became an era of youthful rebellion and radical cultural change -and a new style of jewellery was part of that zeitgeist. Rock ‘n’ roll, the Vietnam War, the Kennedy assassinations, the civil rights and women’s movements, the widespread use of hallucinogenic drugs, and the concept of free love are all associated with these tumultuous decades. From space-age plastic hoop earrings to the hippie’s beaded necklaces, jewellery expressed individuality, nonconformity and the aesthetic, political, and intellectual values of the person who wore it.

Judith Bloedjes • POETIC CERAMICS
Jewellery Exhibition at CODA Museum Apeldoorn / 28.02—20.06.2021
Monumental, round shapes of creamy white Limoges porcelain, framed by flattened silver. Judith Bloedjes’ jewellery and objects strike the spectator with their stilled, sober visual language and colours, and high artistic quality. Each piece of jewellery reflects her love of beauty, form, detail, craft and material. From 28 February to 20 June 2021, CODA Museum presents Judith Bloedjes’ jewellery in the exhibition Poetic Ceramics. A book of the same title accompanies the exhibition.
