SODA is a relatively new international jewelry exhibition held this past summer in Istanbul.   There are so many, many wonderful ideas and designs by over 70 artists.   Their main webpage shows many examples, as does Google Images.

These selections are good places to explore for ideas about using different materials, components and arrangements.   You see the Creative.  You see the Unconventional.  You see Current Trends in Jewelry.
