An enduring forty-year friendship, and subsequent collaboration has been revealed between British artist Tracey Emin and British jeweller Stephen Webster. "As Tracey pointed out on my 56th birthday, we have known each other for almost 40 years", says Webster when discussing their "I Promise to Love You" collection, an edit of rings, earrings, bracelets, tiepins and cufflinks. The idea first came about when Emin created one of her signature ‘I Promise to Love you’ neon signs for Webster’s flagship store in Beverley Hills in 2010. "She said that she always felt that this work should be in a jewellery store, where people buy engagement rings and all the other trinkets of romance", Webster continues. "And soon after I approached Tracey about realising her work through the medium that I know best, jewellery."
