Open call final 300dpi.jpg

Open Call is now closed.


I would like to invite artists working in metal, to submit images of their contemporary filigree jewellery for this upcoming book. A book detailing images of work, concepts and profiles of international filigree makers, which will consequently inspire, and enrich the existing knowledge of the technique.


Artists selection will be based only on the quality and creativity of work. Keep in mind that the quality of the images will play a crucial part in the selection, therefore, please send 2 to 5 of your best images of work. Selected artists will be contacted in the beginning of November and will be elected by a panel of five jewellery experts.

Submission Deadline: 15th October 2021

Please send professional images (product shot and white background preferably, jpeg, 300dpi, minimum size 1024 x 768 pixels) and application form to or via Wetransfer.
