Jewelry artists from across Canada whose work push traditional boundaries have been invited to incorporate red in their work and asked to create pieces to showcase imagination and ingenuity. It is these attributes, rather than the cost of materials, that in part imbue these works of art with their worth and ask us to examine our preconceived notions of value. The colour red has more associations than any other colour. As the universal colour warning of danger, it demands that you take notice. Strong willed and energizing, it stimulates passion and often represents sexuality, lust, anger and revenge. As well as having many political associations, red, being the colour of blood, has historically been linked with sacrifice and courage and culturally with luck, life and creativity. Red also announces itself metaphorically in our language with phrases such as ‘red tape’ and ‘caught red handed’.
