Masters of Modern Jewellery at the Beetles and Huxley Gallery in London

Just in time for Christmas: peruse, and buy, a plethora of original jewellery designs from today's masters of modern jewellery, as curated by Joanna Hardy.


London is in the spotlight this winter, with exhibitions aplenty designed to appeal to jewellery lovers. But while Pearls at the V&A and the Cheapside Hoard exhibition at the Museum of London are for viewing only, Masters of Modern Jewellery at the Beetles + Huxley Gallery, W1, offers something different. A selling exhibition that runs right the way up to Christmas eve, it is the perfect opportunity to peruse - and buy - a plethora of original jewellery designers from all over the world that have all been chosen because they are considered a master of their art.

Curated by Joanna Hardy, a renowned antique jewellery expert, co-author of 'Emeralds' by Thames & Hudson and passionate supporter of independent jewellers, the exhibition showcases an eclectic selection of contemporary designers who use traditional goldsmithing techniques to create their unique wares. There is Luz Camino from Madrid, Shaun Leane from London and Munich's Peter Schmid. Emerging designers include London's Lauren Adriana and Central Saint Martins graduate Sophia Mann.

Hardy has used her expert's eye and love of contemporary jewellery to curate this extraordinarily rich exhibition, featuring the designers she considers to be today's masters of modern jewellery. Anyone with an interest in jewellery design should make a beeline for the Beetles + Huxley Gallery before the exhibition closes on 24 December 2013.

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.
