The idea for this project was conceived by the art historian Martina Eberspächer, and the jewellery was selected by the museum’s Director Cornelie Holzach, who also attended the photo shoot and put the precious pieces on the models. »This was a truly exciting and somewhat agitating experience – after all, we usually show our objects only in display cases. But thanks to the care and caution of everybody involved, as well as some precautions, such as a thick rug, for example, everything went smoothly and without a hitch,« the jewellery expert recalls.
Some of the pictures were already on view in the 2017 exhibition entitled »Must-sees – Jewellery in the Arts«. In addition to the portrait photos, the calendar includes isolated images of the objects, complemented by short explanatory texts. The calendar is available for € 22 at the Jewellery Museum’s shop, or can be ordered by e-mail to email@example.com (plus shipping).
A pocket-size notebook with typography elements from the calendar and a set of postcards with the twelve calendar motifs have also been published. Both will be sold for € 12 each at the museum’s shop.
