28 October

OBSESSED! Jewellery Festival


This edition’s overarching theme, Local and In-Depth, highlights regional gems by opening museum archives and atelier doors of local artists to our global audience. Through a series of online interviews, OBSESSED! 2021 focuses on big ideas by a diverse range of experts based in the Netherlands and Belgium: curators, artists, designers, craftspeople, collectors and more.



Established in 2017 by Current Obsession, OBSESSED! is a Jewellery Festival that focuses on amplifying and celebrating jewellery and its makers. The festival brings together a range of jewellery-related events that speak to different audiences — antique, fine, fashion, modern and contemporary.
