Just as your wedding ring reminds you of your special day, or a locket might remind you of the person that gave you the jewellery, the jewellery in the Room of Dreams tells stories. This is an installation bursting with fairytales and mythical characters, including a necklace inpsired by the Miller's daughter in Rumpelstiltskin, who had to weave straw into gold, to rings made for Alice in Wonderland, which take their inspiration from Alice swimming in a pool of her own tears.
Spanning her 50 year career to date, this exhibition shows the incredible range of Wendy's work. All her pieces are beautifully designed, from the grand metal public commissions to ring stands which are lathe turned by hand for each individual piece of jewellery. Wendy invented the ring set (which is now a common feature of jewellery design and often seen on the high street) and her ring stands transform these groups of glittering gemstones into beautiful sculptures. You can also see Wendy's jewellery made from unusual materials, such as paper, plastic and old clock faces.
