Helga Zahn (1936–1985) was one of the leading jewellery artists in Britain during the 1960s and 1970s. The autodidact, who was raised in Schwarzenbach an der Saale, had a preference for silver and natural materials such as pebbles. Her one-off jewellery is formed from the clarity of simple geometric forms, the lightness and simplicity of the combinations and a reduced colour palette. With novel systematic thinking, in the mid 1960s Helga Zahn revolutionised the studio jewellery movement that was forming across the globe. With around a hundred jewellery objects, this current comprehensive review invites you on a journey of rediscovery and reappraisal of this exceptional artist.

Helga Zahn is represented in numerous museums, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (UK), National Museum Wales, Cardiff (UK), Kunstgewerbemuseum – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (DE), Museum Angewandte Kunst Frankfurt (DE), Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (DE), Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim (DE), Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum, Munich (DE).
