Jewellery inspiration at the British Museum, London

Jewellery inspiration from the British Museum
I am very fortunate to live and work in London, UK. One of the colleges I teach at is a five minute's walk from the British Museum! So I had to nip in to see if they had any jewellery on display. 
I did find some jewellery from throughout the ages and I was struck by our desire to adorn ourselves, a need that even our ancient relatives show us through their grave goods.
I took a few snaps on my phone of some more recent art deco pieces which I found in the Europe galleries. Definitely worth a repeat visit with my sketchbook!
