We are thrilled to announce Harriet Kelsall as keynote speaker. She will describe her story starting a creative business from start-up stage to present day - Harriet is one of the most respected bespoke designers and business trailblazers working in the UK jewellery industry today.
Earlier this month our apprentice Sam Bowles completed his apprenticeship and was made a Freeman of The Goldsmiths' Company.
Sam made a silver vase based on a skull and a Day of the Dead theme with Steve Wager.
Kate Hainge was awarded the second prize in the Jewellery category at the Make Your Mark Awards 2016 for her Magnifying Ring design. One of the prizes was a mentorship with esteemed British jewellery designer Stephen Webster, who has been designing and making jewellery for more than 40 years. After starting out in the jewellery industry as an apprentice in London’s Hatton Garden, the Stephen Webster brand is now known the world over for its bold design style while celebrating traditional craftsmanship.
Kate tells us what she has taken away from this invaluable and unique experience.
