AWC members are invited to come to Lyon & Turnbull's Connaught Street location for an after hours viewing of a stunning private collection of British Jewellery from the 1960's. We will get a chance to hear about the history of this collection and learn about the rise of British artisan jewellery makers in this period of post-War austerity. 

"British jewellery trade saw the rise of 'artist jewellers'.  Their work was ingenious because of the abstract forms used (sometimes casting from nature), and the treatment of materials. The jewellers took a subversive approach to setting precious stones.  Diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds were still used, but often took a backseat to 'humble' materials such as a slice of agate, a turquoise cabochon, or a rough crystal."
