It's been an incredible week so far here at The Business Design Centre for the New Designers exibition! I was lucky enough to have been awarded the Mark Fenn award from the Association for Contemporary Jewellers and I have also been marked out as a 'talent spotted 2016' by The Goldsmiths Centre. Both are just incredible honours and I'm so excited for what the future may bring for me!
I'm definitely focused on perfecting the flowers and then expanding the collection into brooches or tapping into the wedding market with bespoke but to holes? We shall see!
My new collection called 'Floral Focus' was finally unveiled to the public last Saturday at a private viewing at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham. The viewing could not have gone better and the atrium was full of a fantastic vibe of excitement about the graduate work being shown off.
On Tuesday night we hosted an Industry night at the School and I'm so excited to say that my work was really well received with some very lovely comments! I've been given some priceless advice so far and cannot wait to receive more in the near future as to how to expand this business idea and career. If I saw you there then thank you very much for coming to see our show!
Next up is New Designers in London from the 29th of June until the 2nd of July. I'm very excited to see what people I may meet there!
I'm also pleased to say that I have been awarded first class honours degree on my Design for Industry BA course here at the School of Jewellery.
I am a third year student at the School Of Jewellery in Birmingham. Posts will be based upon my progress through my final year on this DFI course.
