At Goldsmiths’ Hall, Foster Lane, London, EC2V

The exhibition celebrates five decades of artistic collaboration between renowned husband and wife team, Dutch goldsmith Leo de Vroomen and British jewellery designer and artist Ginnie de Vroomen. When they started working together in the early ‘70s, they developed a signature style of jewellery unlike anything seen before. As with their current designs, early De Vroomen pieces had a voluptuous quality resulting from being formed rather than constructed - sensuously sculptural repoussé work often combined with glorious enamel.

The exhibition showcases over 100 pieces of De Vroomen jewels, sketches reflecting the creative process, as well as Ginnie’s vivid paintings inspired by nature and the urban landscape. Bold, sophisticated jewellery with flowing lines is placed in conversation with polychromatic abstract art.

By courtesy of the Goldsmiths’ Company and Ginnie and Leo de Vroomen, members of the SJH and ACJ are invited to attend a private view at which both Ginnie and Leo have kindly offered to say a few words of introduction about their work. It will be a marvellous opportunity for jewellery historians and practising jewellers to meet and talk to them about their pieces and what inspires them.

Tickets are £12.00 per person and include wine and ‘nibbles’. Members can invite ONE guest each at £12 per ticket, as numbers are limited.
