In a Fashion update on eccentric jewels, Tamsin Blanchard reported on an exhibition at Spink & Son in 1992 for The Independent.

Late Arts and Crafts jewellery of the Twenties and Thirties is the subject of an outstanding display at the art dealers and jewellers Spina & Son, running in central London until Christmas.

The exhibition of antique and 20th-century jewellery concentrates on the wave of British Arts and Crafts jewellers who stuck to their own slightly eccentric design path rather than follow developments in New York and Paris. They include Sybil Dunlop and Dorrie Nossiter, staunch individualists who worked with semiprecious gems to create rich and flamboyant Oriental patterns, and Moshe Over, who made a series of exquisite silver rings in the form of animals and birds.
