This is an art jewellery exchange exhibition between Convoi Exceptionnel (Finland) and Art Jewellery Network (Ireland).
The project explores the theme of ‘Home’. What makes you feel like home? Is home for you a place, a state of mind, a memory? How does nationality effect these feelings? Every answer is different – the exhibition will present 18 point of views by the means of jewellery art.
