Curating and Consulting

Vivienne has curated major exhibitions, including the 1987 milestone exhibition at Goldsmiths’ Hall, the Jewellery of Rene Lalique and Swarovski’s Jewels of Fantasy, charting 20th century costume jewellery.

As a creative consultant to both British and international jewellery houses, her speciality lies in bringing the past into the present and translating current trends into collections backed with stories and cultural references. For some 20 years, she worked as jewellery consultant to Swarovski, during which time, amongst number initiatives, she worked on an annual trend book and conceived and directed the influential Runway Rocks catwalk jewellery project.

Vivienne has worked closely with both Christie’s and Sotheby’s, writing essays, for example on Egyptian Revival jewellery, and specialist catalogues, including the Agra Diamond and Sarah Bernhardt Fouquet bracelet.
