This exciting exhibition and sale features contemporary designer-makers producing wearable art in a whole host of mediums. All proceeds from the event go towards CCBC, its programs, and to help promote contemporary crafts to BC and Canada.

This year, the virtual opening of The Earring Show featured contemporary wearable art, a delicious cocktail demo, and style for days!

limited edition: adam russcher
Adam's early metal smithing interests and development started while taking welding and blacksmithing courses in Vancouver and Nelson B.C. His first jewellery classes were with Liz Abbott in Vancouver. He spent his spare time focusing on working with recycled materials found from local metal scrapyards. In 2005 he traveled to Mexico and apprenticed under master silversmiths Antonio and Enrique Lopez. They are a father and son team with a long history of teaching and jewellery making in San Miguel de Allende. 2006 Adam returned to San Miguel de Allende and was accepted into Billy Kings, Sterling Quest School of Silver Jewelry Design And Creation. Several years later Adam returned to Sterling Quest to continue his jewelery studies and learn more advanced techniques. He studied and worked in studio 7 days a week experimenting with combining his silversmithing skills with his new love of flameworking glass. Adam has made handcrafted metal and glass jewelry in Mexico , Brazil , Vancouver and Edmonton.
