Found In Translation
Gill Wing Jewellery are excited to preset Found In Translation, a jewellery showcase part of London Craft Week. Romilly Saumarez Smith, who is no longer able to make pieces using her own hands due to a neurological condition has a team of four jewellers - Lucie Gledhill, Anna Wales, Laura Ngyou and Rachel Jones - who to help make her work. They are known as Romilly’s trusted “translators” because of their ability to bring Romilly’s designs to life through conversation only, drawing her creations as she describes them. Together they have developed a vocabulary of evocative names such as “weeds with roots” to explain the components and techniques used. This dynamic process cultivates Romilly’s recognisable aesthetic, developed in her original work. Read more about the exhibition here.
