【10th May – 8th June 2021】
Due to the success of last year’s event, our popular jewellery pop-up is returning to Sway Gallery London, this time celebrating work by two new, exciting artisans from Japan. Their unique pieces have been skilfully crafted by hand, and our handpicked collection is exclusive to Sway Gallery in the UK.
This is a rare opportunity to own the very best of contemporary Japanese jewellery design, so we look forward to seeing you in-store soon.
