As if The Cheapside Hoard wasn’t enough of a reason to go visit The Museum of London, now you can also see an exhibition that is a fitting juxtaposition alongside it.
Called ‘Made in London: Jewellery Now’, seven contemporary jewelry designers working in London today have their wares on display. Jordan Askill, Frances Wadsworth-Jones, Husam el Odeh, Duffy, Rachel Boston, Imogen Belfield and Noemi Klein were invited to share their craftsmanship and inspiration, including how the city influences them. It is certainly interesting to see, through both exhibits, what a trade that was established long ago produced in Elizabethan/Jacobean times and now. Learn about the jewelers and their individual styles in the video below.
The exhibition runs November 21 to April 27, 2014.
