Young Designer Competition
6 June, 2016 - 27 June, 2016
The Goldsmiths' Company sponsors the Young Designer Competition at Jacobs the Jewellers
The Goldsmiths’ Company is delighted to collaborate with Jacobs the Jewellers, Bishopsland Educational Trust and HS Walsh on the Young Designer Competition held at Jacobs the Jewellers in the heart of Reading town centre.
Four young Bishopsland designers will showcase one piece of silver and one piece of jewellery, competing for best design in each category. In the exhibition period (6-27 June), the public will be able to view and try the designs, voting for their favourite piece in each category. Additionally, a number of Bishopsland alumni, now designers in their own right, will be exhibiting their work, though not in competition.
Last year Loucinda Nims was named winner of best silver object design for her pair of silver whiskey tumblers. Dominic Simon’s 18ct gold slotted ring won best jewellery design. The category winners received a framed presentation certificate and £500 worth of vouchers to spend on tools or materials to help establish their careers in the jewellery and silver industry.
