As the term 'Handarbeit' evokes the image of knitting ladies or men doing woodwork, we integrated 'do-it-yourself' instructables and step-by-step instructions into this years presentation.
Personal notes, drawings, ideas and sketches from 8 individual makers accompany the original work – 8 different necklaces.

Whereas in preindustrial times a manual served to exactly reproduce an object, people are now dared to copy a so called one-off, the personal handwriting and idea of the maker.

For the fourth time in a row a group of jewellery artists linked to the city of Amsterdam – which seems relatively north – teamed up to do a project in the context of 'Schmuck 08' in Munich.
'Handarbeit Nord' will be shown at the exhibition space Görres10.
