Make Your Mark (MYM) proved to be the UK’s biggest information event for apprentices and students of jewellery, silversmithing and the allied trades. Led by the Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office and held at Goldsmiths’ Hall, this educational convention quickly grew into an immensely popular, important and valuable event for advice and networking opportunities.
Following a successful collaboration in 2020/21, The Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office and GC&DC teams have once again come together to provide another excellent opportunity for designers to be inventive in using hallmarks as an integral and attractive part of creative design.
The Hallmark is regarded as the oldest form of consumer protection, but it can also be used creatively both as a marketing feature and a striking design element. Not only does it provide provenance, but it can also be used as a mechanism to commemorate special occasions i.e. The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, events and highlight heritage. So here is your opportunity to make your own mark and positive contribution to design and hallmarking by competing for this special, attractive and unique award.
This wonderful opportunity is inviting designers to celebrate the London Hallmark by designing a contemporary item, jewel or product in precious metals.
