The first award I ever won as a jeweller was a Silver Award in the Designer Jeweller Finished Pieces Juniors category. Quite a mouthful. I was seventeen. And already hooked. I never missed a year after that, always preparing a piece for what was going to be my next big win and maybe even the elusive Goldsmiths Award. Alas, that was never to be, but as my business grew I have always encouraged my staff jewellers, designers and in more recent years, CAD team to enter something into the Awards. I am proud to say that over the years all of them have won something including many Golds and Silvers.
In a year when Britain has established itself as a true nation of athletes at the London Olympics, all of us witnessed a sense of pride that we are unaccustomed to. We have also learned the importance of training, commitment, influence and legacy. With these in mind, plus the current crucial focus on retaining skills within the country, the all inclusive Goldsmiths Craftsmanship and Design Awards which recognise the excellence in every facet of the industry feel more relevant than ever. The Awards offer a podium and an opportunity for the best to receive the acknowledgement, a prize and of course, that round of applause for their achievements.
Everyone loves a winner.
