Memories of personal and public events are often very precious. Jewellery has proved the perfect way to turn a fragile moment in time into a treasured object.

In this talk, jewellery curator, historian and author Rachel Church will look at how jewellery has been used to record moments of personal grief and love as well as great public events throughout the ages.

Join us for insights and inspiration. There will be the opportunity to ask question.
