Winners of The Make Your Mark Awards 2019 are Announced

The student award winner was announced as Smaranda Maria Voican from Central Saint Martins, for her “Reveal” ring.  The judges felt this design was both simple and effective and beautifully presented and ultimately demonstrated how jewellery can be made more interesting because of the application of the hallmark.

The Graduate Award was awarded to Ninka Duval who studied at British Academy of Jewellery for her “Thirteen Hundred” ring.  The judges felt this piece demonstrated great craftsmanship, subtlety in the use of the hallmarks alongside the design which celebrated the London hallmark.
