The Allusionist – Engraving part 2: Precious

An extremely lucky thing that happened to me recently is I got the chance to work with my friend Helen Zaltzman on an episode of her podcast, The Allusionist. I wanted to make something about engraved objects, and hear the stories behind people’s precious trinkets and treasures.

I went out and got a bunch of interviews, including people with stories about objects they own, an antique jeweller, and one of the last hand engravers in London. And then Helen and I recorded a conversation about an engraved ring that I own, and that story is included at the end of the episode.

It was so awesome getting to make this and to be on one of my favourite podcasts. Hopefully we can collaborate again sometime! You can listen to the whole episode here or below.
