In this new entry to this popular series, every pendant is a masterful work of art, whether it's symbolic (amulets, talismans and charms) or purely decorative. Judged by Mike Holmes and Elizabeth Shypertt, this beautiful colour collection includes pieces crafted from diverse materials and techniques (including forging, casting, forming and stone setting). Seth Papac constructs a ghostly and atmospheric cityscape out of poplar wood, architectural siding and building materials, as well as gold, silver and elastic and Jane Adam's signature use of softly coloured aluminium always astounds with its multiple fronds of gracefully arching metal. Jewellers, metal-smiths and collectors will all find inspiration in these one-of-a-kind works.
