A colour once more precious than gold, blue pigment was highly prized as a status symbol where owning and displaying paintings in this intense shade was an opulent sign of wealth.
The original Ultra-Marine blue pigment was only achieved using precious lapis lazuli from Afghanistan where it’s first use was seen in cave paintings.
The natural mineral was so vivid it was believed to be a piece of the sky fallen to Earth. Falling in love with blue over and over again, we are celebrating this captivating colour by showing the work of a range of artists using blue in a special piece of jewellery.
Open Call
Gill Wing Jewellery would like to invite jewellery designers and makers to apply with a piece of their own Blue Jewellery to be featured in the colour themed show, Beyond the Blue.
