Made / Worn: Australian Contemporary Jewellery explores the act of making jewellery, from intimate pieces to large-scale objects presented by the Cairns Art Gallery.


All works in the exhibition are designed to be worn – to adorn and embellish the body and to be a vehicle for personal expression. 


Twenty-two jewellers are represented in this exhibition, with works spanning a wide range of materials, techniques and meanings, and designs that are playful, intricate, conceptual, personal and political. 


This is a visually exciting exhibition that showcases some of the most striking, personal, conceptual and beautiful items of contemporary jewellery and body adornment being made in Australia today. 


FILM – The Made/Worn film was made to accompany the exhibition by Angus Lee Forbes. It features a number of artists in the exhibition and gives some deeper insights into what inspires these artists and what contemporary jewellery can be.
