This exposition was prepared by the Leon Wyczółkowski District Museum in Bydgoszcz and YES Biżuteria Sp. z o.o. from Poznań. It is the first exhibition in the Bydgoszcz museum presenting contemporary work by Polish goldsmiths. One can admire a collection of jewellery from Maria Magdalena Kwiatkiewicz, co-owner of YES. The gallery she founded has become an important place for presenting the works of leading goldsmiths to the general public, and for promoting the art of Polish goldsmithing. Maria Kwiatkiewicz has organised numerous exhibitions for individual artists and for groups of artists, as well as regular contest exhibitions. The gallery specialises in presenting unique jewellery and its goal is to promote artists of various backgrounds and their most recent achievements. The exhibition is highly differentiated – allowing one to learn more about the ever-changing collection and how to evaluate it. It includes works of art from an extensive collection of unique jewellery dating from the turn of the 21st century. They catch the eye with their great variety in terms of form, material, concept, theme, and source of inspiration. These pieces allow us to learn some secrets of the goldsmith's craft, see designs and materials which may at times seem surprising, and discover the beauty hidden in these miniature works of art.
