This Christmas I have been having quite an adventure in a land very far from home, Ethiopia. During my visit I have been to some tribal areas in the Lower Omo Valley. Meeting some incredible people and ways of life. I wanted to share some of the different jewellery styles from some of the different tribes I visited.
After a recent visit to the Contemporary Ceramics Centre I would find it impossible to choose between some of the amazing work on display at the moment, I love all these artists featured from top to bottom -
I would love my walls to adorn some of the work of the artist Cornelia O’Donovan. She incorporates folklore and poetry on both canvas and ceramics reminiscent of rustic medieval tapestries - beautiful.
The Cheapside Hoard, London’s Lost Jewels - this exhibition at the Museum of London displays the collection of unearthed jewels in its entirety, known as the most important source of knowledge on early modern jewellery worldwide. It explores the mysteries as to why these treasures were hidden and why it was never reclaimed. A must see exhibition and one I am looking forward to going back to.
