Dazzle Contemporary Jewellery Exhibitions is dedicated to showing the best of contemporary designer jewellery. We organise three exhibitions a year in Edinburgh, London and Manchester, showing work in a wide range of materials from gold and silver to paper and plastics. We are committed to showing young makers at the point of graduation alongside internationally renowned designers.
Our latest project is lovedazzle- selling contemporary designers online
We return for the third year to our lovely Edinburgh venue, Dovecot Studios on Infirmary Street. This year we will be back upstairs in the Ladies Baths. We have now invited most of our designers, with some exciting new additions and recent graduates. We will also be showing work by Edinburgh based printmaker Paul Furneaux. Paul, who graduated from Edinburgh College of Art, works with Japanese woodblock printing (mokuhanga). He has exhibited widely in UK and abroad and his work is in many public and private collections. Downstairs will be an exciting new commission from Dovecot - Immersion, created by Dundee based artists Dalziel+Scullion.
Dates 1-25 August, times 10.30 to 6.30 daily. Opening preview Thursday 31 July.

We are pleased to be returning to gallery@oxo, Oxo Tower Wharf, for our London exhibition this winter. After over thirty years at the National Theatre, our enforced move last year, proved to be a great success. This year we hope to build on this success, once again showing our mix of established designers and cutting edge recent graduates. The iconic Oxo Tower Wharf is a great place to visit, not just us, but also a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, galleries and individual retailers.
Dates 9 November to 11 January 2015. Opening parties on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 November. Times to be announced.
The gallery@oxo is owned and managed by social enterprise Coin Street Community Builders (CSCB).

New at lovedazzle
lovedazzle has introduced some new features to the site for 2014 to make your buying experience even better .You can now zoom and magnify the jewellery, giving incredible close up details of the pieces. This is only one of the changes, aimed at making the site faster and more dynamic.We will, of course, keep introducing new makers, so keep your eye on the regular emails.
For inspiration remember to check the What's New section on the site. We have had a real influx of new pieces to the site recently. Brighton based designer, Sarah Packington has added some colourful new designs, just in time for the better weather. Sarah uses hand and laser cut acrylic pieces with dyed edges or etched lines. Her new Fragments necklace is in white, smoked and orange dyed acylic and is a very dramatic piece.
We are delighted to introduce Mariko Sumioka to lovedazzle this month. Mariko is a Japanese maker now based in London. She is inspired by japanese architectural characteristics: natural materials and colours, dark and bright contrasts, linear forms, geometric shapes and spaces. Her mixture of silver, copper, enamel and kimono silk creates stylish and very individual pieces.
