Amberif Design Award 2017

The winners of the competition are presented at the Amber-Expo in Gdańsk, the formerly Danzig.

The winners of the amber competition, curated by Barbara Schmidt from Munich, come from Poland, Germany and France. The theme of “periphery” left the imagination plenty of space. 124 jewelery artists from 25 countries went to the indefinable terrain and explored the possibilities and limits to convert the gold of the Baltic Sea mostly into expressive but sometimes also very simple jewelry. The results reflect the artistic freedoms and creative diversity of contemporary jewelry.
