Every three years, the Eligius Prize selects the best of the best in contemporary jewellery design from Austria, followed by an exhibition presenting the work of the ultimate winner. This year, 34 designers submitted their proposals, out of which 13 were nominated by the jury, and the Vienna born Paul Iby took home the first Prize. As for every edition, this year the submissions were characterized by a wide diversity of aesthetics and broad artistic spectrum. Iby won with his various objects, such as necklaces made of enamelled copper with rayon and spiral cables. His use of materials was impressive and innovative. The exhibition at the  Pforzheim Jewellery Museum follows the presentation at the MAK Vienna in March 2019.
