Founder member Jeanne Werge Hartley retires

Jeanne Werge-Hartley

As well as welcoming friends and regular customers to our private view at the Barbican this year, we also took the opportunity to present a gift from us all to Jeanne Werge Hartley on her retirement from being an active member of the group. As the last of the founder members of the group, which started in 1976, Jeanne was instrumental in bringing the DJG to the Barbican and was chairman of the group twice. We were also delighted to see founder members Brian Marshall and Tony Laws who also came to make the occasion a really special one for Jeanne.

Jeanne’s distinctive and fluid style is shown above with one of her brooches in 18 ct yellow gold, and below- Jeanne is presented with her gift by Annie Ruthven Taggart
