Enhancing your employability

If you join the School of Jewellery you’ll find a wealth of opportunities available to you. Our talented students and graduates have been the recipients of awards which have helped them develop their careers.

Our annual Industry Awards Evening has a number of high-profile sponsors and recognises innovation and creativity in jewellery design.

Andrew Howard was the recipient of last year’s Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council Gold Award. "Having this award has already opened doors to me, with people coming to my websites and booking in commission work," he said.

Clive Taylor has just been awarded the New Designers’ Goldsmiths’ Award for Silversmiths.

Caitlin Victoria Gregory-Thomas, who is now an Artist in Residence at our School won a Lustre Young Meteor Award. Judged by Lesley Beale, organiser of the annual Lustre contemporary craft makers market in Nottingham, the award recognises innovative work.

The Louisa Anne Ryland Travel Scholarship was awarded last year to Annelisse Pfeifer and enabled her to travel to Antwerp in Belgium and Barcelona in Spain. She took part in an internship at 'Contemporary Jewellery Magazine'. "I was delighted and honoured to be awarded the full scholarship. It was a great opportunity to network and make new contacts for further projects," said Annelisse.

These are just some of the many awards available to you if you choose one of our jewellery courses.
