Exhibition research

I am still busy with the planning and designing of the jewellery exhibition due to open at Whitby Museum at the end of March.  Today I spent the morning attempting to photograph pieces of jet for one of the information panels.  For those of you who love beads I am just posting this picture as a taste of what will be in the exhibition.  This is part of a long jet necklace where the carved beads are graduated and have round smooth jet beads in between.  It is Victorian and is usually on display within the museum's huge collection of jet.

I do like jet jewellery, my first pair of 'grown up' earrings were jet and I still have them 30 something years later so they are almost Victorian!
