In her book The Unconventional Gage Miss Gage writes ‘Coins have always had a fascination for me because of their historical association. I became fascinated by Alexander the Great after using coins bearing his head many times in my jewellery. When I pick up an ancient coin I am aware that I am touching a piece that has been handled by people many hundreds of years ago,’

It is particularly appropriate that some pieces are being shown with ancient Greek coins in this exhibition which so succinctly combines ancient and modern in such an engaging way.
