Sieraad Art Fair
yearly international jewellery art fair
Sieraad Art Fair (SAF) is an international festival at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam where 200+ professional contemporary jewellery designers sell their work directly and in person.
Amsterdam's international jewellery art fair at Westergasfabriek
SAF focuses on unique and handcrafted jewelry. The emphasis is on art jewelry ideas which surprisingly are packaged in materials like rubber, textiles, photographs, plastic, wood or ceramics, but also silver and gold. And you can also see classic goldsmithing.
This 15th edition of the festival goes back to the roots: to the ethnology of jewelry. Ethnological jewellery originates from and is connected with all possible milestones in life, with traditions, ancestor worship and the use as amulet, talisman and medicine. Jewellery is the bearer of symbols and wearable stories with a fascinating symbolic language.
The show takes place in a former gasworksfactory in Amsterdam West, now used as a cultural venue.
Westergasfabriek has several spaces: the large circular Gashouder (Gasholder), the long and light Zuiveringshal (Refinery Building) and the smaller Transformatorhuis (Trafo House). They all have pleasantly high ceilings ranging from 10 to 18m in height.
