Dazzle Contemporary Jewellery Exhibitions is dedicated to showing the best of contemporary designer jewellery. We organise four exhibitions a year in Glasgow, Edinburgh, London and Manchester, showing work in a wide range of materials from gold and silver to paper and plastics. We are committed to showing young makers at the point of graduation alongside internationally renowned designers.
Our latest project is lovedazzle- selling contemporary designers online
Dazzle is on the move! Following over thirty years at the National Theatre, we are moving along the South Bank to the gallery@oxo, close to the ITV building and Gabriel's Wharf. It is a very exciting new departure for Dazzle. We will be able to showcase contemporary jewellery design in a gallery context and enable our designers to reach a wider audience. We remain committed to showing a range of cutting edge work by recent graduates alongside already established names. The gallery@oxo is owned and managed by social enterprise Coin Street Community Builders [CSCB]. With a changing programme of exhibitions, the gallery is one element of the iconic Oxo Tower Wharf. On the floors above the gallery are over 20 design, art and craft shops and galleries selling fashion, fine art, interiors and jewellery. You’ll also find restaurants, cafes, bars and event spaces. Come and discover something different on every floor, something different around every corner.
The exhibition is now open every day. Opening times 10 to 7.30 Monday to Saturday, 11 to 6 on Sunday. Late night opening on Thursdays until 9pm. Exhibition continues until 5 January 2014 Telephone number 07472 105423 during opening hours. Designers.

Manchester is on the move for our Christmas 2013 exhibition. We have been invited to show at Manchester Art Gallery in their Atrium space and lower gallery. The extra space available has inspired us to invite four very special designers to showcase their work with us. Angela O’Kelly from Ireland, makes wonderful sculptural bodywear , combining paper and mixed media. Deirdre Hawken is a designer maker specialising in headpieces which are witty and stylish , using traditional millinery techniques. The Nuno Company, from Japan, will be showing their very original textiles and scarves. Our fourth maker is Kirsty Eaglesfield, from Scotland. Kirsty works mainly in silver and wood, often incorporating pieces of collected flotsam. This promises to be a really exciting Manchester Dazzle.
Opening times Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday 10am to 5pm, Thursday late night until 9pm, Friday 10am to 6pm. Direct telephone number 07821 236676 during opening hours.
