The organisation of the workshops constitutes a continuation of the successful cooperation of the Czech Centre in Seoul and the Seoul Jewelry Industry Support Center, Fashion Jewelry Town in Daegu and the Museum of Jewelry in Iksan, with which the Handmade Dreams exhibition presenting the contemporary trends in the production of Czech costume jewelry and a series of lectures by the head curator of the Museum of Glass and Costume Jewellery in Jablonec nad Nisou, Petr Nový, were held last year.
The workshops will be followed by the announcement of a competition for the most beautiful costume jewelry work made from Czech seed beads. The best products will be presented to Korean society at a joint exhibition and the three winning works from each city will also be displayed at the Museum of Glass and Costume Jewellery in Jablonec nad Nisou (Czech Republic).
The participants in the workshops will try working with glass costume jewelry seed beads when making sakura blossoms, which they can use to create a variety of costume jewelry creations from the Sakura design range designed by Helena Chmelíková for Preciosa Ornela. The workshops will be led by the Czech designer, Kateřina Krausová, who has cooperated with Preciosa since 2008. She designs and makes collections of promotional costume jewelry designed for international trade fairs and exhibitions. In addition, she has also created original pieces of costume jewelry for the Pantone Trends and Hobby projects or sales boxes for brands such as Fossil, Pandora, Luis Vuitton, René Caovilla or Ralph Lauren.
