Adorn: Jewellery, The Human Story

Adorn ancient discoveries Artefacts Colchester Castle Colchester Museums contemporary jewellery essex exhibition jewellery display vintage buttons

I went to visit the curated exhibition Adorn at Colchester Castle starting from 27/07/2019 - 16/02/2020.  The show explores the hidden stories of personal adornment, from Bronze Age beginnings to modern makers.  On loan are several pieces of my jewellery along side five other jewellers, all chosen because of our connection to Essex. Featured are Colchester artefacts, and loans from other museums.

My work will fits in really well with the overall theme of personal adornment through history. Incorporated into my jewellery designs are vintage buttons which are not only little pieces of history in their own right, but were also a form of adornment on peoples clothing spanning several eras.
