The latest showcase at Estonian Museum of Applied and Design presents groundbreaking and fresh jewellery from Northern Europe, a comprehensive selection of 159 works by 61 artists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Estonia.
Go there to see how contemporary jewellery crosses the borders and explore pieces for which wearability is often the least important requirement.
The exhibition is open in Tallinn until May 11, then it will move on to Gothenburg and Munich
