Pearl & Queenie to host jewellery sculptors’ collections.

The Travelling Jewellery Emporium, a showcase of detailed sculpted jewellery, is set to make a stop at Hastings jewellery retailer Pearl & Queenie.

The showcase, the brainchild of Hatton Garden-based wax carvers and jewellery designers Russell Lownsbrough and Danila Tarcinale, will arrive at the George Street store – run by Professional Jeweller Hot 100 2011 Retail Star, Kathy Dyton – on November 8.


The Travelling Jewellery Emporium has been running for three years, with Lownsbrough and Tarcinale using the project as a creative outlet to showcase their abilities as design consultants, wax casters and prototyping, after 20 years of working and designing for other brands including Vivienne Westwood, Garrard and Damiani.

The Emporium will showcase several collections, with Lownsbrough and Tarcinale customising their own display cabinets, giving them the feel of Victorian collector’s room of ephemera.

The Travelling Jewellery Emporium was first launched in March 2010 and is set to evolve in the coming year with a third member joining Lownsbrough and Tarcinale on the tour, as well as collaborations with a number jewellery boutiques.

The pair recently showcased their work at IJL and have had their Iconic collection selected to appear in the British Museum’s Treasure of Heaven exhibition.
