About the Gallery
Louisa Guinness Gallery works with today’s leading sculptors and painters to create jewellery as well as collecting and dealing in works by master artists.
The gallery opened in May 2003 with its inaugural exhibition ‘Past and Present; Jewellery by 20th Century Artists’. With this show Louisa Guinness departed from her original focus on artist-made furniture into the world of artists’ jewels. Since then she has worked on over 18 separate projects with leading contemporary artists.
Each new work is published in a small edition to the highest standard. Most are handmade in London’s famous Hatton Garden district or the artist’s studio. The ethos behind the jewellery is that it should be treated as wearable sculpture: whilst it is not being worn it is a piece of art independent of function, at home on a coffee table or in a dressing room.
