Charmed 2020 in the Gallery at Danaca Design
An Exhibition of Handmade Charm Bracelets and Necklaces
Explore these intricate and meaningful pieces in the gallery through March 6, 2020.
Last January we offered the metalsmithing community a challenge, via social media, to create a charm a month for a piece to be presented in a show at Danaca Design, 2020. We asked that each piece have a cohesive theme; 12 charms to represent a concept, event, technique, memory, anything… We asked and they responded, from across the globe!

A Show of Boxes and Lockets
November 1-30, 2018
Beyond Borders – Containing Objects, Releasing Ideas
From lockets, poison rings, and reliquaries to pill boxes, compacts, and vessels, containers are limited only to the borders created by their maker. In this show, artists rendered materials into vessels that explore these borders- including the perimeter, the fit of the lid, the hinge or clasp, and the joining of parts – to create containers that hint at the hidden, and explore the world concealed within their walls.
October 4th, Thursday night, 5pm-7:30pm
