For the last 15 years I have been designing jewellery for some of the largest museums and galleries in Europe. My latest silver jewellery collection at the National Gallery in London has just gone on sale and currently, it is in the two shops in the main Gallery. The National Gallery approached me to design an exclusive collection inspired by Van Gogh's painting "Sunflowers". The pieces are bright and cheery- all sterling silver with peridot and citrine stones to mimic the sunflowers. If you are near Piccadilly Circus, go and take a look!
The Prado in Madrid contacted me recently and asked if I would design an exclusive collection inspired by the paintings by Ingres for their exhibtion that runs until 27th March 2016. The garnet silver jewellery pieces are very luxurious.
I also design for the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Toulose Lautec Museum and many more.
It is fantastic for me to bring together two things I love, designing jewellery and visiting Galleries to see beautiful paintings!
