One of the most important collections of jewellery in the country is to go on permanent display on Teesside from this summer.

Mima - the Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art - is creating a new gallery to house more than 200 pieces of artist-made jewellery.

The items from the 1970s onwards can go on display because of a grant of almost £300,000 from the Arts Council and support from Teesside University.
