Manuel Vilhena - Miss Amelia & 1001 Rings
Gallery S O on Brick Lane is a true hidden gem and is the forefront for conceptual jewellery in the UK. It is the most wonderful space and definitely worth a visit for one of their interesting exhibitions. I went to the opening of Manuel’s show recently and it was truly poetic.
"Miss Amelia comes from a poem I wrote sometime ago. The poem turned into a story, which served as a ground to produce the brooches. Likewise the brooches fed forward into the story making it change, and so on and vice-versa, until in the end the story and the objects created each other." - Manuel Vilhena, 2012
