Jacqueline Mina OBE Showcase

04 Mar 2015 - 28 Mar 2015

The Scottish Gallery is delighted to present  a showcase of new jewellery from Jacqueline Mina OBE.

"Following a research project I was involved with in 1999 at the Museum of London,  in which a Roman sarcophagus and its contents discovered in London’s Spitalfields were being studied, I became fascinated by the ancient technique of ‘striptwist’ and its possible adaptation to my own work.  It entails taking a long ribbon (strip) of gold and twisting it to the extreme, forcing the twist to collapse into a tubular form. In Antiquity this was an essential part of wire-making for filigree. I discovered, during my experiments with the technique, that if the ‘tube’ was partially un-twisted a beautiful, helicoidal form emerged, evoking the whorl inside spiral sea-shells – a small wonder of Nature. I have been constantly drawn back to this theme, creating necklaces, bracelets, earrings and brooches over the ensuing years -  and I haven’t finished with it yet!" Jacqueline Mina OBE 2015.
