s.13 Ready to Wear Jewellery

The National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) and the British Allied Trades Federation (BATF) return for the 2021/21 Craftsmanship and Design Awards, and this year seek to highlight the fragility of our environment and the beauty of nature as we turn our thoughts and practices towards achieving a Net Zero future

This Ready-to-Wear section invites jewellery that represents demi-fine, contemporary, easily reproduced and commercial with a nature inspired design or that celebrates our beautiful world.

Entries can be made using precious and non-precious materials, and will be judged on their design merit, commercial viability and market suitability.  

This award seeks to encourage, identify and reward good, commercial design that can be successfully reproduced. The quality of craftsmanship and finish will be taken into consideration and a high standard of finishing is encouraged and expected.

An unmissable opportunity

The winner of this special award will be announced to industry press, across the NAJ’s online platforms, with a potential editorial feature in The Jeweller magazine. 

In addition, the NAJ will offer one of their Jet Educational Courses to further the career development of the prize winner.

Entry Form Requirements

There will be placeholders on the entry form for you to explain your design concept and the tools or techniques / processes that you have used. We encourage entrants to use these placeholders wisely. The information you provide will be ensure that judges can make informed decisions. 

The placeholders are: 

  • Material information: Materials used to produce the piece/s. (Max 150 words) 
  • Processes used to produce the piece/s: It is important that you write down all the techniques you have used to make your piece and especially whether any elements are created using technology. This will be used in the judging process and you may be at a disadvantage if it is unclear how the piece was made. (Max 150 words)

In addition, if another craftsperson helped to finish / create your entry (i.e. polishing / setting) they may enter your piece as a separate entry under the relevant craft section (i.e s.20 Polishers) This is a great way to champion the crafts and the collaborative nature of our industry!
