Description

As a starting point, each Jewellery and Metal Masters student from the Royal College of Art have selected a group of related objects from the Museum’s vast collection. With the notion of making the original social network, the Museum’s artefacts become catalysts for conversations; recognising communal uses, inviting collective memories and nostalgic narratives. The wide range of chosen Museum artefacts include a Korean jewelled pocketknife, Egyptian amulets, headdresses, an embroidered wedding jacket, ex-votos, surgical instruments and toy animals. This is a documentation of their process and outcomes.
