The City of Jewellery

The space above the Trinitatis Church in Copenhagen, formerly the university library and a store for royal antiquities, is now used for exhibitions. Climbing the tower this evening I caught the last day of the exhibition called The City of Jewellery organised by the Copenhagen Guild of Goldsmiths in conjunction with open days, exhibitions and events at the work shops and show rooms of 38 workers in precious metals around the city.

Down the centre of the space was a time line tracing events associated with the Guild and its craftsmen from 1400 with some historic pieces including silver cups and the treasure chest of the guild. New works on display used a wide variety of materials to produce jewellery and vessels and other works of art in an amazing variety of styles.
