Goldsmiths' Fair 2022

This year was the 40th anniversary of Goldsmiths' Fair so it was an extra special privilege to be a part of it. The Hall looked amazing with huge banners and set details, visitors were back in force and it was a wonderful week celebrating all things jewellery and silversmithing. I made many new pieces; brooches, earrings and a flurry of new necklaces. A highlight was one of my brooches being selected by Rachel Garrahan (Director of Jewellery and Watches at British Vogue) for inclusion in the 40/40 exhibition at the Fair. I learnt a lot and felt very inspired by my neighbouring exhibitors, Patrick Davison, Eleanor Whitworth and Kyosun Jung (examples go their work shown below). I had surprise visits from family and felt really supported. A great week :-)
