The Viennese Jeweller28 Aug 2019 - 28 Sep 2019
The Viennese Jeweller showcases a new collection of work from award winning jeweller Jacqueline Lillie. Jacqueline lives and works in Vienna, a city famous for glass beadwork. Internationally recognised for her innovative, sculptural jewellery created from exquisite glass beads and mixed media, her work is held in both public and private collections across the world.
"Every piece must meet certain aesthetic requirements and must stand up to the rigours of a working environment. For me, form and function are on an equal footing, complemented by flexibility. All good jewellery should adapt to the wearer and be an extension of that person’s character. The ultimate test with any piece of art is the impact that the piece has on the person looking at it, or in my case, on the person wearing it. My work is very much a labour of love in which I have tried to meet the client’s urge for self-adornment and satisfy my own desire for poetry and elegance."
