The chain is an endless series of interconnected links that is rather insignificant in contemporary jewellery. It primarily has a supporting function, for example, as a carrier of a pendant. In ‘From Walter to DIVA’, it takes centre stage. Students, Belgian and international designers have examined the concept of 'jewelleryness' in their work: what are the artistic qualities, such as wearability, glance or detailing, that make an object into a piece of jewellery?
