Jewellery inspired by 'As You Like It' set for display at the Royal Exchange, Manchester

My Jewellery inspired by Shakespeare's 'As You Like It' is all finished and set for display at the Royal Exchange, Manchester.  These tiny ‘theatres within a theatre’ draw on the theme of love discovered and rediscovered that is so much a part of ‘As You Like It’. Mirrors and shadows project the leafy other-world of the woods into these little spaces – and where the woods are, things are often turned on their heads.  And there are puzzles to work out too, in keeping with the nonsense that both enlivens the play and moves the story along – why has someone discarded a violin, mislaid a broom and let the bird out of the cage? And why does a clock appear in many of the scenes?
