In Contemporary Jewellery in Portugal Cristina Filipe offers a critical examination, from a social and art historical perspective, of some of the artists and contexts that contributed to the transformations in Portuguese jewellery from the vanguard of the 1960s to the early twentyfirst century – a decisive period in which the term ‘jewellery’ itself was redefined. In addition it contextualises the international scene, reflecting on how Portuguese artists responded to these external influences. What jewellery was made? Who made it? What were the underlying trends and creative references? These are some of the questions that this book seeks to answer through the analysis of artist interviews and exhaustive factual research, accompanied by a visual narrative mirroring the changes in contemporary jewellery in Portugal.

This project was made possible by a Susan Beech Mid-Career Artist Grant from Art Jewelry Forum.
