This ring was part of VII Muestra Orfebrería Contemporánea (VII Contemporary Goldsmithing Exhibition) at the Museo Nacional de Artes Decorativas (National Museum of Decorative Arts) in Madrid, Spain, from February 3 to March 19, 2023.
This ring was also exhibited at Brussels Jewellery Week in Belgium (1st Edition, 2022). Brussels Jewellery Week announced Jess Bischoff as the 2022 recipient of the Communication Award by Eugenia Gadaleta.
"The Canadian contemporary jewellery designer Jess Bischoff was selected for the visual impact of the creations associated with the message she wants to convey in coherence with the assigned theme. The visual image and storytelling - focused on specific research gathering processes associated with some of the more recent aspects of NASA's Mars Exploration Program and on the concept of “learning by doing” - have a high communicative potential, which can be of great interest to journalists and magazines if reinforced by professional marketing and public relations tools."
