“The Power of Love” featuring Beatriz Chadour-Sampson

December 18th, 2019

For centuries, the power of love has been expressed through the bestowal of objects conveying deep affection, eternal commitment, or passionate desire. Today, Sandra Hindman and Beatriz Chadour-Sampson discuss The Power of Love, Chadour-Sampson’s new book on the history of amorous inspirations for novel jewelry vocabularies and historical revivals. Egyptian amulets, Rome, the Middle Ages, Shakesphere, and the sudden popularity of bio-jewelry, as well as the author’s early childhood experiences with the process of crafting jewelry are all covered in this exclusive interview with Beatriz Chadour-Sampson. 

This conversation was recorded in London on December 4th, 2019.
