myth making

With the Fashion Festival in full flight (hard to say before coffee) we are most looking forward to Figment - a new show at E.G Etal with some of our favourite jewellers responding to a really interesting brief from curator Fleur Watson. The makers had to draw on personal memories of a fable or myth -what a high falutin idea!With Katherine Bowman, Michaela Bruton, Anna Davern, Natalia Milosz-Piekarska, Jessica Morrison, Karla Way and Katherine Wheeler all part of the show the work is sure to be as diverse as it is beautiful. We hear there is a 'bespoke' installation for the show by French graphic designer AnneLaure Cauvigneaux. We love bespoke - the word, the idea, its all fabulous as is befitting the festival! Ms Wheeler also has a great show on at handheld gallery. 

I will be particularly interested in seeing Katherine Bowman's work (I got a sneak peek a couple of weeks ago) and because I am the proud new owner of her beautiful silver and lapis lazuli ring.
What I love most about her work is the level of personal detail. Each piece quietly imbued with the mark of the maker. And it's a pleasure to spend time with, not intrusive but great company. A lot like Bowman herself.
We know there are a lot of links in this post but take the time to check some out - jewelers make great bloggers!
