Romilly Saumarez Smith & Verdi Yahooda.

An exhibition of works by jeweller Romilly Saumarez Smith and artist Verdi Yahooda. Each of the pieces have at their core Roman, Anglo-Saxon or Medieval metalwork, dropped or discarded hundreds of years ago. These scraps of ancient lives have been transformed by Romilly into wearable art – contemporary jewellery; while renowned artist Verdi, a long standing friend and artistic collaborator of Romilly, has made some exceptional photographic prints of the original metal finds.
