Women’s Art Center of the Hamptons (WACH) and Bella Neyman, jewelry curator and founder of NYC Jewelry Week, are proud to present “Immediate Connections” a jewelry exhibition featuring the work of Birabiro, Oblik Atelier, and MPR Jewelry on view from July 18-21, 2024.

Using the drawn line as the foundation for their creations, these three jewelers handcraft their pieces with meticulous care. They produce unique or small limited-edition wearable, sculptural jewelry that is suitable for both everyday wear and special occasions. Their innovative use of wire showcases their ability to transform hard materials into soft, organic shapes.

MPR utilizes signature nylon-coated stainless steel cable wire, blending it with sterling silver, 14k gold fill, and semi-precious stones. Oblik Atelier folds and forms brass and sterling silver wire, while Birabiro works with a variety of materials, including sterling silver and brass wire and semi-precious stones. Each jeweler's distinct approach exemplifies how they masterfully manipulate these materials, bending them to their creative vision.
