An exhibition of contemporary Japanese jewellery, including rings made from cigarette lighters and necklaces made from antique love letters, opens at the Crafts Council Gallery in London on 15 November. Designed by Strickland Coombe Architects with graphics by Cartlidge Levene, the event will run until 13 January and showcases the work of 50 artists. The practice of jewellery art within Japan is a 20th century development and has been strongly influenced by western styles, says exhibition curator Simon Fraser. Pictured is Brooch, designed by Shinya Yamamura.
