Dazzle Contemporary Jewellery Exhibitions is dedicated to showing the best of contemporary designer jewellery. We organise three exhibitions a year in 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
We return for the third year to our lovely Edinburgh venue, Dovecot Studios on Infirmary Street. This year we will be back upstairs in the Ladies Baths. We will soon be inviting our designers, our mix of regulars and some exciting recent graduates. Downstairs will be an exciting new commission from Dovecot - Immersion, created by Dundee based artists Dalziel+Scullion.
Dates 1-25 August. Opening preview Thursday 31 July.

London Exhibition Report
2013 was a year of change for Dazzle. Following our untimely ejection from the National Theatre after thirty two years, we were faced with finding a new London venue at short notice. We were fortunate in being offered the gallery at Oxo Tower Wharf, keeping our presence on the South Bank. The exhibition looked fantastic, although it was very stressful getting it together at short notice and entailed a lot of capital expenditure. We hope that we will return, to build up support at the venue over the coming years and that our National Theatre regulars will stroll along the South Bank to visit us and the shops and restaurants at the Oxo Tower Wharf.

Manchester Exhibition Report
We also faced change in Manchester, where we decided that the disruption of the many daytime performances at the Royal Exchange Theatre, made the exhibition unviable. We moved to Manchester Art Gallery in Mosely Street. The extra space meant that we could invite some very special makers. We showed couture hats, silversmithing, sculptural paper jewellery and handwoven scarves from Japan, alongside our regular Dazzle jewellers. It is a great space and our customers appreciated the proximity of the very tempting Art Gallery cafe and shop.
