The Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris has an enviable collection of Australian contemporary jewellery thanks to the passion and generosity of Diana Morgan AM, who has been an international advocate in this field for over 20 years. This collection recently acquired eight new works by our artists Catherine Truman and Inari Kiuru.

The works acquired include Catherine Truman’s recent, majestic ‘White Leaf’ brooch and a series of her ‘Nasturtium’ brooches, and four significant brooches from Inari Kiuru’s recent series ‘A forest spirit visits the city alone’.

Our warmest thanks and admiration to Diana for her long-time support.
