When you find your tribe (in my case the metalclay community) it is fun to meet when you are in driving distance of each other. That's why I spent a day in Gent with my friends Lora Hart & Donna Penoyer. Gent is a lovely place with lots of historic buildings and a perfect place to stroll around.
That's how we stumbled onto Art Jewelry Galerie Pont & Plas. A work from Gesine Hackenberg on the counter drew the attention from Lora. So we three entered the gallery. A true treasure trove of contemporary jewellery. You can see Lora and Donna opening one of the many drawers filled with art pieces.
Beside the work of Gesine, we were enthralled with the work of Ria Lins.
You can see Lora looking at a necklace from the connection series with a magnifier. Really very special!
Inside we met the lovely Nicole Thienpont who told with enthousiasm about "her artists". A true Art Jewelry heaven!
For an exquisite selection of hand-made contemporary jewellery.
