For a good three more months until March there is a chance to see the Design Museum’s exhibition, Unexpected Pleasures.
The exhibition fuses together unusual contemporary jewellery and design to create an exhibition full off things that are slightly on the odd and unusual side but very pleasurable to behold.
It won’t be to everyones taste, as contemporary art rarely is but it is a good example of what is going on around the world when it comes to creative and ‘unexpected’ design.
200 objects from around the world are part of the exhibition which has been curated by jewellery designer and maker Dr. Susan Cohn.
There are a number of themes which the pieces are collected into. They include Worn Out - celebrating the experience of wearing jewellery, Linking Links - looking at the ways in which meaning and narratives are expressed in jewellery and A Fine Line - offering insights into the origins of contemporary jewellery today, highlighting key instigators of the contemporary jewellery movement.
Tickets start at £13 and you can find them here.
