Designers collections to support show via British Museum shop.
By Deepa Narwani
Sima Vaziry has supplied a new range of jewellery to The British Museum, commissioned to support the current exhibition Shakespeare: Staging the World.
Two of the items from the Shakespeare collection are inspired by the Lochbuie brooch which is part of the main exhibition. The calligraphy on Vaziry’s lines refers to two of Shakespeare’s plays, Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra.
The pieces are modern interpretations of Tudor jewellery, using red and green gems combined with silver and 24ct gold plating. This is the third collection that Vaziry has created for The British Museum in 18 months.
The items are on sale at the Grenville shop and will be available until November 25.
