Only 10 days to go until entries close on 15 January for the 2023 GC&DC Awards!
2022/23, the Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office and Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council teams have come together again to run the Make Your Mark 2D Design Award in the Goldsmiths’ competition.
Our brief asks you to design an item of jewellery, smallwork or silverware that promotes, enhances and celebrates the London Hallmark.
Of crucial importance, will be the scale of your idea that will enable the hallmarks to be a contributory and complimentary feature to your overall design.
Designs can be presented as a hand drawn presentation or CAD illustration, or in combination. You must include a scaled drawing and specifications such as measurements and materials used and comply to current legislation for UK Hallmarking. Mixed metal/other material proposals must contain the legal minimum amount of precious metal. Thought must be given to its construction, as well as a description relating to your inspiration, concept and development.
Entrants need to state the reasoning behind the placement/use of the hallmark and can also indicate the method of hallmarking (laser or struck), and size of marks (0.5mm to 6mm).Click here for full details See the 2020/21 winners here
