How about my own Instagram?

Well, the answer to the question about my own Instagram feed is that results vary – and quite significantly!  Partly this is due to my testing out the benefits of “pods” or “engagement groups” and partly, I suspect, it is to do with the hashtags I am using.  Life is a learning curve and, when you’re late to the party, it’s not always easy to edge in to a crowded room from the front door.  I wonder if sharp elbows would help??

This is my most recent image on Instagram – I just love this brooch with it’s Art Nouveau inspiration but with it’s interlacing design too.

When you see this brooch in real life – it’s an amazing piece of workmanship.  The 3-d design brings the Mackintosh style to life.  You can easily visualise sitting in a rose garden, looking at roses climbing up a trellis.

I’d love it if you would follow me on Instagram – my instagram name is @scottish_celtic_jewellery – looking forward to seeing you there 🙂

Celts – Art and Identity

Opening at the British Museum in London on the 24th September is a major exhibition which will examine the full history of Celtic art and identity.

  • Many objects provide clues to and raise questions about Celtic identity.
  • From the depths of the River Thames come magnificent Iron Age treasures such as the Waterloo helmet and Battersea shield.
  • Roman jewellery, early medieval manuscripts and crosses, a Liberty tea set and even a modern football shirt tell a constantly evolving British and Irish story.
  • Major loans, such as the spectacular Gundestrup cauldron, reveal profound cultural connections across Europe.

24 September 2015 – 31 January 2016

Opening times

Saturday – Thursday 10.00–17.30
Friday 10.00–20.30
Last entry 80 minutes before closing

Tickets for adults cost £16.50 – under 16 and you get in free.

The exhibition moves to Edinburgh in March 2016.
