The choice of the jury is always subjective; we were seriously considered to interpret properly and professional such interesting works as those, which qualified for the exhibition. As jurors we had to deal with the instructions obtained from the authors and our own sensitivity and experience.
In the case of jewellery, reading a message is always a challenging task and requires an appropriate key (thus, it is also fascinating). There were a lot of works too simple, too obvious and literal to be placed at the exhibition. From the start we rejected simple jokes and naive forms. We decided to select works giving varied, not always literal and obvious, opportunities to interpret the theme SEXY.
