Jewellery exhibition at Whitby Museum

I am in the final stages of putting together the jewellery exhibition at Whitby Museum, due to open to the public on 30th March 2010.  I have had a fascinating time selecting items from the museum collection, particularly as it has meant I could really search out objects that are not always out on display and also that I could show them together with items from other collections - so contrasting items from different periods or cultures.
I have been able to create a small display of jewellery made from different materials such as the necklace or rosary of Water lily seeds from Lake Lugano, Switzerland and the African ivory or bone bracelets.  I have also selected this amazingly intricate chain made of horsehair.

It must be fascinating to have access to such treasures.
