British Silver week

A few photos from the Rising Stars day at the Pangolin Gallery as part of British Silver week. A great day for all of the exhibitors and a my first piece of silversmithing on display.

Bishopland at Collect

So I've been a little behind but here are some pictures taken of the Bishopsland exhibit at Collect. I was helping out on the Friday and Sunday and got to meet so many people and peek around Collect whenever the chance arose.

My perspective may have changed slightly since my last visit to Collect, looking at the prolific silver vessels by Ndidi Ekubia and Hiroshi Suzuki (both Adrain Sassoon) I did still take the time to see some beautiful jewellery up close, even getting to touch the Golden fleece ring by Giovanni Corvaja made from gold wire drawn down to the width of a hair.

Other favourite jewellers were Jacqueline Ryan at the Scottish Gallery and Zoe Arnold at CAA.
