The Summer exhibition introduces 6 new jewellers to the gallery; Sophie Breitmeyer, Julia Parry, Charmian Beaton, Tamara Gomez, Liz Willis, Jennie Gill. It is also our 5th year anniversary!
The gallery is also very proud to be supporting Japan after the devastating earthquake earlier this year in which many children became orphans.
Found on the beach in Japan only two days after the disaster some beautiful pieces of old, hand painted Japanese pottery and glass were collected by a British friend of mine, Jacqualine Kurio. Working with Japanese jewellery designer Yoshiyuki Tsukamoto the pair have come up with these beautiful necklaces they are calling Sea Jewellery.
Although not from the affected area per se, Jacqualine feels that the sea gave them up as gifts, as if it were trying to make amends and she knew she had to do something with them. We are, from the 22nd June , selling these beautiful pieces in the gallery with 100% of the profit being donated to the Sendai Grief Care Association, a local Japanese N.P.O. that offers support to children who have been orphaned.
If you cant make the Private View Evening then the Exhibition runs until the end of September.
