Designer’s 1920s-inspired work on show at the Guildhall Art Gallery.
London-based jewellery designer Farah Qureshi has created a micro collection of jewellery for an exhibition at the Guildhall Art Gallery in London.
Qureshi has created a set of gemstone-set jewellery, including rings, earrings, a bracelet and a pendant for the Age of Elegance exhibition, currently taking place at the gallery which is a stone’s throw from St. Pauls Cathedral.
Her work has been inspired by John Lavery’s portrait of his wife, Lady Lavery, a 1920’s socialite depicted wearing grey chiffon, pink silks and strands of pearls.
The exhibition includes works from Guildhall Art Gallery’s permanent collection and celebrated the transition of art from the Fin de Siècle to the Jazz Age. Work by Qureshi and a number of other designers from Craft Central, a central London community of jewellers and artists, has been selected as “contemporary responses” to the artworks.
Qureshi’s jewellery, some of which features black diamonds, will be part of the show, which runs until May 28.
