Gold medallist nursery Primrose Hall Peonies collaborates with award winning British jewellery designer Theo Fennell for RHS Chelsea 2020.
‘Treasure Every Moment’ is a walk through exhibit showcasing a bespoke, hand-made jewellery collection. Designed around peonies and made by British, award-winning designer, Theo Fennell.
The exhibit will be innovative, exciting and interesting to visitors, showcasing a wide range of rare and unusual peonies, including some from the National Collection of Itoh hybrids. Visitors will be able to view these rare and unusual breeds of peony with magnifying glasses.
The exhibit will also feature a British designed and crafted garden sculpture which will be modelled as an over-sized ring. It will have a swing seat and include a video screen showing the evolution of the
manufacturing/growing process from both the jeweller’s and grower’s perspective.
Primrose Hall plantsman Alec White says: “I am thrilled to be working with an amazing British creative such as Theo Fennell on our Chelsea exhibit. This collaboration will bring peonies into a world they may not usually inhabit and that is very exciting. The focus on craftsmanship will highlight to the public the skill of master peony grower and master jeweller. Highlight the synergy between the crafts.”
