Philip Sajet


Beauty is the most important 


Exhibition in the cycle About the Artist, which presents distinguished personalities in jewellery art from Poland and abroad. A retrospective exhibition of the well known Dutch artist, a graduate from Rietveld Academi in Amsterdam (under prof. Francesco Pavan), a lecturer at many Universities. His works have been exhibited all over the Europe, as well as in USA and Japan, and are included in the collections of many museums and galleries.



Sajet’s jewellery has a unique, distinctive use of form but it is made to be worn and through wearing to change its impact, breaking free from its artist-creator and developing its own life. The wearer too will change on wearing the piece, as it connects to his or her personality and deliberately draws in the attention of a third party, the beholder. In this light it is hardly surprising that Sajet has produced predominantly rings, earrings and close fitting necklaces which adorn the hands and frame and highlight the face. These are the parts of the body which stand for the expressive side of the personality; our facial expressions and gestures communicate with others, emphasise our nature, the unsaid and the said.
