Our School of Jewellery students and graduates received no fewer than 14 shiny awards for their unique designs at the most recent Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council Award Ceremony.
Alumnus and silversmith Clive Taylor was left 'delighted' and 'overwhelmed' after winning a national award for his work from the prestigious Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council. Clive's award-winning piece (pictured) is a striking and elegant executive LED desk lamp made from sterling silver which is operated by non-contact proximity sensors or using an app on a mobile phone or tablet.
Another gold winner was BA (Hons) Jewellery Design and Related Products graduate, Isabella Liu, who won the special award for her Fashion Jewellery.
Known affectionately as the Jewellery Oscars, the award ceremony was hosted by former Birmingham Assay Office Chairman Kay Alexander at the Goldsmiths’ Hall, London on Monday 2 March attended by some of the county’s finest jewellers and silversmiths.
