“ALLIAGES organisation has 2 goals : promote contemporary jewellery & educate to this art. To educate public to  contemporary jewellery, ALLIAGES has started a private collection which it is called to be transmitted to a museum.
From its creation up to the moment this collection will be trasmitted, ALLIAGES will promote this collection and the artists which are part of it, making exhibitions or other events worldwide, using virtual or physical networks. To promote & recompense the jewellers, ALLIAGES creates its Price for Contemporary Jewellery, in collaboration with JOYA Barcelona Art Jewellery fair & Ring-ring Gallery Barcelona.
A Legacy, an heritage left or handed down by a predecessor. The aim of ALLIAGES is to pass on an artistic heritage to make it known as widely as possible by the public. An heritage composed of emotions and imprints, of persons and talents. An heritage to be transmitted…Make a collection is a long work, which takes years and energy. Once this collection will end in a museum, all people having participated to this adventure (organizers & artists) will find his/her benefits. For Alliages, we will have the satisfaction to have participated to educate people to this art; our main goal is to make the jewelry shiny. For artists having participated, benefits will be to have been promoted and part of a great project, having work(s) that will be seen and admired by many people in several location (Fair, Galleries and Museum). Before this moment, Artists selected each year will find many benefits: catalogue/book, presence in JOYA for the award final and other events, in order to promote and make shine his/her work. In this project we are all working for the posterity.”
