When the world comes to Munich to celebrate Schmuck, let us take you on an exploration into cultural identity and jewellery on our 'Tour du Monde'... by bike.

We will discover whether there are any special characteristics and/or specific local issues that intrigue the artists, any particular materials and techniques or typical aesthetics or style that stand out in each culture. What makes a piece of jewellery an example of a country?

We will visit six countries, finding out which aspects of culture shine through. From social protest and jewellery as a reaction to social issue, to the subject of nature and urban landscapes.
