A New Discovery: Prints and Drawings

I am a student every Tuesday taking part in the History of Jewellery Course run by Dr.Beatriz Chadour and the curators in the jewellery and metal department. It is a rare experience to be taken through the developments in jewellery since early times and to be able to handle rare pieces from the collection.

This week we were taken to see the print department’s collection of designs for jewellery. It is so amazing to see these things at first hand, original drawings by Lalique and Josef Hoffman and a rather surprisingly poor drawing of a necklace by C.R.Ashbee.
