Just back from a long and relaxing weekend in Brighton with a brief sojourn to London, primarily to see the David Watkins exhibition at the V&A.
The Watkins exhibition was a touch disappointing as there wasn't very much in it, perhaps 20 - 30 pieces, all jewellery but the Silver Gallery and the jewellery collection at the V&A never fails to please.

Some photographs from this visit:




I really liked this last photograph of the testing needles as it reminds me a bit of some of my own sewing-machine needle pieces.

The V&A is my favourite place to go in London, bar none. I, too, love the fact that it genuinely has something for everyone!

I love how the photos you took work so well with the pieces you create- the photos I take at the V&A are very different from yours, but I suppose that's because our work is so different! I love that they've got something for everyone- in massive quantities!

I did see the post, but didn't see the exhibition, which is a great pity. They have so much on and it is 600 miles from here, so I don't get to see everything I would like to.

Thank you for posting this. I always enjoy seeing what the crafthausers bring back to the table from their various excursions away from the studio. The V&A IS a spectacular place, no doubt about it. Did you see the video I put up recently? It was from a 2009 exhibition they had:
