Preciousness on paper: design drawings in the Goldsmiths’ Company Archive

Design drawings can reveal much about the objects they foreshadow, but they also have their own stories. These can be all the more dramatic due to inherent fragility of works on paper. Join Goldsmiths’ Company Librarian Eleni Bide as she explores some of the most fascinating designs held in the Goldsmiths’ Company’s Archive and the tales of love, hope, ambition, and of course artistry which they document. From rough workshop sketches to exquisite presentation drawings, these designs shed light on the lives of the designers, workmen and patrons who made silver and jewellery which we still treasure.
