Sydney Living Museums

 

Moe Moe Design x Sydney Living Museums have come together to curate a collection that can be taken home with you long after your visit.

Sydney Living Museums cares for a group of 12 of the most important historic houses, gardens, and museums in NSW. Their purpose is to enrich and revitalise people’s lives with Sydney’s living history, and to hand the precious places in their care and their collections on to future generations to enjoy. If you love architecture, interiors, gardens or Australian history, a visit to any one of Sydney Living Museums’ historic homes and museums will reveal the fascinating people and stories of Sydney’s living history. But look closer and you’ll see how these remarkable properties tell the evolving story of architecture in Sydney.

About the Designs:

Our artifacts collection was inspired by gaming tokens. These bone, ceramic, and wooden gaming tokens were found by archaeologists at Hyde Park Barracks beneath the floors and appear to have been hand-carved by convicts from rubbish scraps and animal bones saved from their meals. Gambling with coins was common among convicts even though it was banned at the Barracks and punishable by a stint in the solitary confinement cells. 

Our stained collection was inspired by the wealth of history in stained glass windows. Evidence of stained glass dates back to the Ancient Roman Empire, when craftsmen began using coloured glass to produce decorative wares. Stained glass windows were used in churches to enhance their beauty and to inform the viewer through narrative and symbolism. 

In addition to our website, you can find Moe Moe Design x Sydney Living Museums earrings across their many historic locations in NSW. For more on the Sydney Living Museums visit their website at https://sydneylivingmuseums.com.au/.
