Paul Podolsky’s career in jewellery spanned over 70 years. His story, which started in his father’s workshop in 1939, provides a window onto Hatton Garden in the 20th century. It includes the destruction of war; the struggle through austerity; and innovation and reinvention in the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Delve into the world of Art Deco and post-war jewellery through the design drawings of the Podolsky archive and the extensive book collections of the Goldsmiths’ Company’s Library.

This workshop has been programmed as part of the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s talks series in association with the Goldsmiths’ Company.
