I got roped into doing a little demo for an area non-profit's art camp this week. In prepping for that stint I decided to find and print out a few pictures of pieces of ancient jewelry to give the kids an idea of just how long people have been adorning themselves. (Recent findings prove about 75,000 years.) I thought it would be a 5 minute Google search, but it was actually more difficult than that to come up with good images. Finally I thought to Google "British Museum." Jackpot. I had to share the link to their Flickr pool here. Some truly beautiful pieces that should prove inspirational to jewelers or makers of any sort.
