The GoldsmithsCraft & Design Council will return to exhibit at International Jewellery London from 4 - 6 September with a new stand and new location of T50, on the mezzanine and perfectly situated by this year’s designer jewellers.

As always, GC&DC’s presence at IJL marks the launch of the Councils annual competition, which has helped and encouraged many careers in the jewellery and silversmithing profession.

Its welcoming new stand at T50 will provide details of the 2017 competition and features work from a number of 2016 award winners. Members of the Council, including Chairman Jos Skeates and Secretary Brian Hill, will be on hand to answer questions and encourage both entrants and supporters to become involved in 2017’s exciting awards

Speaking of IJL, Chairman Jos Skeates said, “We are thrilled to return to IJL and look forward to meeting both new and established designers, apprentices and craftspeople at the show. The annual Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council Awards are about highlighting, awarding and encouraging craft skills and design talent in the UK jewellery and silversmithing industries, and IJL is the perfect launchpad for our 2017 competition. Visit our new stand to find out how you can enter and see some of our talented winners’ work.”

This unique annual competition, known affectionately within the trade as the ‘Jewellery Oscars’, rewards excellence in technical skills and creative design in precious metals and related materials. The Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council, who run the competition,  actively encourage craftspersons, designers, apprentices and students to enter their work in these highly respected  awards.
