Chp...?

Chp…? stands for chi ha paura…? -- which in English translates as "who’s afraid…?".  It is a "jewelry project in context" by famed Dutch designer Gijs Bakker, co-founder of Droog Design. The goal of Chp...? is to show that by producing conceptual design jewelry, a good piece of jewelry is more than a decorative accessory. Chp...? asks some of the most innovative internactional jewelers to invigorate the tradition of jewelry design, while paying particular attention to concept, play, new techniques and materials, and by this, concentrating more on the preciousness of the idea rather than on the material value of the object. The collection offers some of the most compelling, cutting-edge jewelry made today. Chp...? jewelry had been based in Amsterdam since 1996.
