Jewellery Show and the Goldsmiths’ Centre announce new partnership
The jewellery industry will come together at Excel, London on the 5th & 6th September for the largest UK trade event of the year to be inspired, learn and trade.
This unique partnership will provide a platform for the new talent showcase in jewellery and silversmithing, ‘Shine’ curated by the Goldsmiths’ Centre, which helps to shape the careers of up and coming talented emerging makers through a programme of skills training and showcasing opportunities. To further add to their journey, selected pieces will be chosen and then presented on the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s dedicated Runway scene at this year’s Jewellery Show.
Speaking of the partnership Charlotte Dew, Public Programme Manager at the Goldsmiths’ Centre said,
“We are very pleased to be collaborating with the Jewellery Show to create this platform for emerging designers’ work to be seen by a wide range of retailers, suppliers and ambassadors from the industry. The chance for makers at this stage in their career to see their jewellery modelled is rare and adds a whole new dimension to their learning and development.”
Alison Balshaw, Sales Director of Jewellery Show said,
"We are so excited to be partnering with the Goldsmiths’ Centre, providing a dedicated scene on the Jewellery Shows runway is a real privilege. This will certainly be one to watch and a great way for the whole industry to see such prestigious talent showcased live in front of them – a partnership to keep your eyes on and a must see for your diaries in September ”.
