Hidden Gems: The Jewellery of Sigmund and Anna Freud

Freud Museum Education and Outreach Officer, Emilia Raczkowska, will introduce you to some of the most personal objects in the Freuds’ collection: their jewellery.

The father of psychoanalysis would famously offer intaglio stones set in rings to the members of his closest circle of friends and followers. His youngest daughter Anna, a pioneering child analyst, owned a rich collection of beautiful pieces ranging from jade brooches to beaded necklaces. Many of these pieces don’t appear extraordinary but held great emotional significance to their wearer.

This talk will consider the many meanings and roles of jewellery, as we will dig out some of the most personal and hardly-seen artefacts from the Freud Museum’s vast collection.

This event is part of London Craft Week 2020, an annual event that showcases exceptional craftsmanship through a journey-of-discovery programme.

Booking opens in February 2020.
