Artist and author Tessa Morrison has designed and handcrafted a collection of enamel necklaces that depict the character and story of 16 of Shakespeare’s female characters.

This stunning exhibition is held in Tamworth Library from Friday 2 February 2024 to Thursday 29 February, the accompanying book brings alive the textual imagery of Shakespeare.

Tessa Morrison will visit Tamworth Library Thursday 29 February at 2pm for an author talk to discuss the characterisation of the women she has depicted in these necklaces, and how enamel lends itself to storytelling.

Tessa will talk through her inspiration, explain the techniques used to create her enamel necklaces, and how she translated Shakespeare’s textual imagery into visual imagery for each woman.
