For the series Downton Abbey, Andrew was commissioned to produce a range of jewellery for the main characters. This talk is based on the changing styles of the time portrayed. Jewellery and Fashion are intertwined and in his talk Andrew guides us through the extraordinary periods and events between 1890 and 1929, where the great fashion houses collaborated with the finest of jewellers to produce works of art of outstanding quality and glittering opulence. Along with this he discusses the clients and patrons who commissioned the jewels and how they were worn with the sumptuous gowns.
