Material Memories: The Art of Mourning Jewellery in the Victorian Era.

A talk by Dr Natasha Awais-Dean on the design and use of mourning jewelery

Through their physical proximity to the body, jewelled goods are highly personal objects. Jewellery has the power to create strong memories, either through its materiality or in invocations implied through inscriptions. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Victorian mourning jewellery.

In this talk, Natasha Awais-Dean illustrates the art of mourning jewellery in this period and explores its sentiment and significance to the people who wore it.
