The Brooch is Back

TubeFlash Exhibition, Clerkenwell Design Week

TubeFlash has always had close associations with Transport for London so when earlier this year TfL said they wanted to run a competition inspired by TubeFlash called ‘Design a brooch inspired by the London Underground Map’ I said great.

After months of work, the winning jewellers’ designs have been chosen and will be on display as part of  The Brooch is Back Exhibition. As well as the winning brooches, many of the original TubeFlash brooches that inspired the competition are also on display.

The exhibition – a free event – runs from 23rd May to 10th June at Craft Central, St John’s Square, London, EC1M 4DS.

Alongside exciting new brooch designs by up-and-coming designers, this is you chance to see my collection of TubeFlash brooches in the flesh. Have you ever wanted to see the detail in the 1910 Angel’s head, or wondered how a ‘giveaway’ in Vogue Magazine from the 1930s survived to become ‘Green Park’? Perhaps the glamour of Christian Dior’s ‘Mornington Crescent’ is more your thing.  There will be over 50 TubeFlash brooches on show – if you have the chance, pop along to see them.
