Adorn - - MUSEUM TOUR -

Mak­ing metal mel­liflu­ous is the sen­su­ous pur­suit of the smith: I love to make metal sing. Who can re­sist the lure of gor­geous gem­stones art­fully nes­tled in richly tex­tured gold? My bliss is in the de­tails... sub­tle tex­tures, bold de­signs, ar­tic­u­lated move­ment, the colours of New York or Monet. This is my pas­sion ever since I can re­mem­ber. Noth­ing has de­fined hu­man­ity more than metal and stone... the most el­e­men­tal of Arts, the de­sire to adorn, in­stinc­tual. Wear these pieces as a Queen would a scep­tre, or a King, a signet. (Gem-set ear­rings by He­len)
