The "Legnica International Jewellery Competition" took place for the 29th time this year. A total of 186 artists from 35 countries submitted works on the theme: "Still Human?"
The competition is the main event of the "Legnica SILVER Festival", which has been organised by the Gallery of Art in Legnica since 1979. The jury selected 44 artists for the exhibition in the gallery and offered several prizes.
Among this year's winners is Sivlia Bellia, who graduated earlier this year with a Master of Fine Arts degree in gemstone and jewellery. She was awarded the prize of the International Amber Association for her brooch "Amigdala".
Also selected for the exhibition was the work of graduate DOT MELANIN (MFA 2016).
Silvia Bellia is an Italian artist based in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. Her work reflects her interest in an essential aspect of human nature: technological augmentation. She combines the use of new technologies, such as 3D modelling and printing, with the ancient art of stone cutting.
