Going to the Munich Jewelry Week for a young gallery like OHMYBLUE (we’ll be 3 years old in a fews days) is a journey through history in the making.

Bringing contemporary jewelry on the streets allows generations and cultures to juxtapose and to collide as different objects are in fact put in relation with the flow of life letting people use them to ask questions, to make metaphors, to play.

Focusing mostly on singularities that gathers together, the events during the MJW offer the viewer a flux of fierce statements, enjoyable storytellings and rigorous manufacture.
The result is a dream-like situation in which the viewer sits between many things and many different directions at once.

Placing a work in the world is a strangely intimate experience and it’s like these makers were there to share their dreams with us, planting them in us to start a new story, sometimes a new friendship too.
