Those fabulous Schofield women have a Pop Up called Jewels on Queen – 40 Queen Street Woollahra – just in time for Christmas.
The pop Up showcases Anne and Nell Schofield’s collection of exotic Indian traditional and tribal jewellery and a brilliant private collection of Central Asian Turkmen jewels.
The people of Turkestan comprise Turks, Tajiks, Mongols, Uzbeks Khirgiz and Jews and originally led lives as both nomads and town dwellers along the silk road.
Both traditions of jewellery have deep symbolic meanings and use images and forms denoting fertility, long life and prosperity. Indian jewels sometimes incorporate images of local deities such as the sun god or goddess of the harvest. The Indian silver tribal jewels include necklaces, chains, earrings, pendants, bangles and rings and are extremely wearable and affordable.
