He uses his illustrations as a spring board for his designs, translating narratives into unique jewels, which he creatures miniature wax models of first. His debut collection, which won him both a bursary from the Goldsmiths’ Fair as well as other esteemed design prizes, was inspired by his research into bees and urban beekeeping.

Lucie Gledhill
Lucie Gledhill began her jewellery career whilst doing a BA in Jewellery at Middlesex University; initially creating paper jewellery driven by her great interest in book binding. Patterns and repletion soon started to become a fundamental part of her designs. She then went on to complete an MA in jewellery at the Royal College of Art, focusing on traditional skills, where she developed her signature sculptural chains. Lucie recently celebrated her 6th year exhibiting at Goldsmiths’ Fair.

Vicky Lew 
Vicky Lew is a fine jewellery designer who graduated from Central Saint Martins, where she received a scholarship to train at Cartier. Recently debuting her collections, FLIGHT and PLUME, at the prestigious Goldsmiths’ Fair, her pieces are influenced by traditional Eastern sensibilities and Western design concepts.

Shivani Patel 
Shivani Patel is a designer goldsmith passionate about researching, designing and hand constructing individual pieces of jewellery. Since graduating in 2005 with a 1st class Honours degree in Silversmithing, she has been selected to take part in a number of prestigious exhibitions and received awards from the Goldsmiths’ Company and the Arts Council amongst others. She now runs her own studio practice. Inspiration for designs evolved whilst travelling in India, America and southern Spain, studying the contrasting styles of ancient eastern and contemporary architecture. Constant visual observations of pattern and texture are reflected in the distinctive aesthetic within her work. Each piece is made by hand in various colours of gold and oxidised silver.

Ana Thompson 
Ana Thompson is a Colombian born jewellery designer based in London. Her unique collections intersect the fields of design and science, with an aesthetic style influenced by her explorations into the hidden beauty and wonders revealed at the magnified microscopic and macroscopic scales. Her designs are timeless, elegant and sophisticated, defined by the exploration of organic and geometric forms found at the most extreme scales and relate to the body with versatility and sculptural sensibility. Her latest collections debuted at London Fashion Week received two awards this year from the Goldsmiths' Craft & Design Council Awards 2017.

Samuel Waterhouse 
From Northumberland, now based in London, Samuel Waterhouse works mainly in fine silver and pure gold. He creates simple yet contemporary jewellery with original inspiration from antiquity. He retains simplicity in his pieces so the beauty of the jewellery can stem mainly from the surface and colour of the material used. Largely self-taught, Samuel’s design and work is predominantly process led.  His work is influenced by the reaction he observes in the materials he uses when working with them. This development partly determines how the piece continues to mature.
