Countercurrent - An Exhibition by Staff of BA Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins
Melanie Georgacopoulos - Shackle Cufflinks
18ct yellow gold, white freshwater pearls
Well why not! We had a wonderful exhibition of marine paintings by Martyn Mackrill and it was a great success so when we were approached about a collaboration with Central Saint Martins for an exhibition of jewellery inspired by our historic shop and all the nautical gear that we stock we thought let's see what happens. Over the past few months we have taken small groups of jewellery lecturers into the basement and right up to the top floor, we opened old drawers full of printing blocks, explained the different types of ropes, let them handle our beautiful bronze fittings and sent them off with some ocean going inspiration.
Now the fruits of all their work are on display in the shop window and upstairs at Arthur Beale. There are some beautiful pieces - some are wearable jewellery and some are definitely not! Why not come along to the shop, pick up the splendid brochure and have a browse.
Open during shop hours from Saturday 17th September until October 7th. Admission FREE - but be warned you could be tempted to treat yourself!
