Museum of the Jewellery Quarter

 

I went to the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham yesterday and it’s absolutely amazing. In 1981 the jewellery manufacturers Smith & Pepper were forced to shut due to the sky high prices of gold. They abandoned the building and everything was left exactly as it was at the time of closure. As someone who makes jewellery, it was fascinating to see how it used to be done.
