Full Description

Helga Zahn (1936-1985) was one of the leading jewellery artists in Britain during the 1960s and 1970s. The autodidact, who was raised in Schwarzenbach an der Saale, had a preference for silver and natural materials such as pebbles. Her one-off jewellery is made unique by the clarity of simple geometric forms, the lightness and simplicity of the combinations, and a reduced colour palette. With novel systematic thinking, in the mid 1960s she revolutionised the studio jewellery movement that was forming across the globe. With around a hundred jewellery objects, this comprehensive review invites you on a journey of rediscovery and reappraisal of this exceptional artist.
