Riverside treasures

On a beautiful November Sunday, a walk across Waterloo Bridge -
Changing views of the strange collection of buildings that is London's 21st century skyline -
Tide out = foreshore accessible = must go look for clay pipes ...
But we were on the way to the Oxo Tower to the preview of Dazzle - lots of wonderful jewellery - I was most taken by the bold stuff made out of non-precious materials -
"Metamorphic" collection by Rhona McCallum - interesting materials
Many-planed wood  meets metal in Cristina Zani's work
I also really liked (= wanted to buy) Chie Mannami's patterned resin brooches -
or a bangle (or the mismatched yellow earrings?) by Kaz Robertson -
Fortunately I already had a pocket full of treasure -- old, broken, Thames-washed clay pipe bits, "sea glass", some broken pottery - and some animal's tooth -
