GC&DC x Brown & Newirth – Deep Dive into Jewellery Design

The GC&DC hosted a conversation with our Special Patrons, Brown & Newirth, as we talked jewellery and announced the winner of the Love in Lockdown 2D Jewellery Design challenge. This was followed by a 'Deep Dive into Jewellery Design' as we caught up with Pamela Statham, Head Jewellery Designer at Continental Jewellery UK and a GC&DC judge, and Zoe Harding a Goldsmith’s Company Award Winner, GC&DC judge and freelance jewellery designer with over 16 years’ experience. They talked about their work as jewellery designers, and how they approach client briefs, with plenty of helpful tips and advice to take away!
