The Ganoksin Project

Jewelry Manufacturing Methods and Techniques

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 10, 2012

The online exhibition titled “Differences Unite Us” is now open to
the public, The exhibition showcases 330 images chosen from entries
from over 111 artists representing 26 countries.

Ganoksin hosts the jewelry discussion list Orchid, with over 13,000
list members from all over the world, speaking from a wide range of
technical and aesthetic experiences. The exhibition theme grew out
of a desire to celebrate the creativity encompassed in this wide
variety.

Artists were free to interpret the theme in any way they chose. Each
artist could submit up to six pieces. Interpretations include
uniting different materials into one cohesive form; intellectual and
emotional “unitings”, where the meaning of the piece unites multiple
concepts; the uniting of time - past, present and future; and a
number that focus on the harmony created when uniting multiple
materials and/or concepts.

The work submitted involved a wide range of jewelry techniques, from
very traditional to very cutting edge, as well as using materials
from traditional precious metals and gemstones to “re-purposed” and
"up-cycled" materials.

The exhibition showcases 330 images chosen from entries from over
111 artists representing 26 countries:

Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Czech
Republic, France, Greece, India, Israel, Italy, Malta,
Mauritius, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines,
Serbia, Spain, Trinidad, Turkey, UK, USA, Venezuela, and the
Virgin Islands

Many of the participants began their interest in jewelry at a young
age. Some are relative newcomers to the field, and some have over 35
years of experience as professional jewelers and goldsmiths. While
some grew up in families that were goldsmiths, and followed in those
footsteps, others only began creating jewelry as adults.
