Royal Birmingham Society of Artists

from 15th march to 5th April

I really enjoyed this exhibition, and my companion, the artist Charlotte Hanmann from Copenhagen, was sincerely impressed by the high technical standard of the art exhibited

the jewelery always impresses me at this gallery

Upstairs I met Lord Mayor of Birmingham - Councillor John Hood
biography I could not resist mentioning the need for an Opera House and he said that he had visited the new opera house in Leipzig (one of Birmingham's eight twin towns)

Michele White president of the RBSA
who writes:- "The making of jewellery is an ancient craft. Art is an emotional representation of what we see around us.
I strive to combine the two.
I fuse precious metals and punctuate them with bright and colourful gemstones and smooth droplets of gold and silver.
I set up my studio in the Jewellery Quarter in 1986 . Work has featured in many exhibitions throughout the country and in 2000 was awarded 1st prize in the RBSA prize exhibition for ' Estuary Triptych "
