When I introduced gold into my recent pieces it got me thinking about how inspired I was by The Museum of Gold. Last year my husband and I went to visit his hometown of Bogota, Colombia. One of the places that he took me to was this museum.
At the time I took a ton of photos in the museum of the beautiful pieces and the way that they were displayed. So on the topic of gold here are some photos from inside the museum of some of my favourite pieces. There is a lot more information available about the history on the museum website.
This shape really interested and in the gift shop they sell cast replicas of some of the pieces with information about which time period they’re from. I thought that these earrings below were the perfect souvenir.
