This show will feature ten artists with varying styles and will reveal their process of creating and making.

Images and videos of the artists’ processes will also be shown through Instagram and on their blog in the coming months.

Humans have been making jewelry for tens of thousands of years. In fact, some of the oldest known beads date back to 100,000 years ago. Today artisans can choose to make their living using their hands and skills. Yet in a world dominated by technology, machinery and computers, these artisans and their skills are becoming rarer and rarer. In celebration of artists who continue the tradition of working by hand, this show will unveil the craft that go into creating and fabricating their work.

In an effort to help protect the health and safety of the community, Shibumi Gallery will now be open by appointment only until further notice. Please contact them at 510.528.7736 or to set up an appointment if you would like to visit the gallery.
