London Jewellery and Silversmithing Fair 2011

Lilly Hastedt

Event preview

THE London Jewellery and Silversmithing Fair 2011, the UK’s only mixed media jewellery and silversmithing consumer show where visitors can purchase direct from contemporary designer makers, is being held once again in London from March 4 to March 6, 2011.

The event offers visitors a choice of around 70 individual jewellers and silversmiths who have been selected for their superb and innovative craftsmanship and have a genuine passion for the work they create.

The 2011 event will be staged at the Bank of England Sports Centre. This new venue, close to Central London, a stone’s throw from the beauty of Richmond Park and set in 32 acres of award-winning grounds, provides a unique location steeped in English tradition – a perfect backdrop to an event of this calibre.

For those wishing to use public transport, a free courtesy bus will be running from Barnes station.

Visitors can see and purchase from an exciting range from both emerging British talent as well as more established designer makers. There really is something for everyone with the huge variety of stylish, unusual and original designs across a wide price range from just a few pounds to many thousands.

Anyone celebrating a special occasion – maybe a birthday or anniversary – may also like to speak to many of the makers about commissioning bespoke pieces of jewellery or silverware.

In the past, several visitors have commissioned engagement or wedding rings at the event and, by working with the designer maker, have been able to have input into the design and come up with something that means so much more and is completely individual.

Opening times for the general public are 10am – 5pm each day. For further information contact Craft in Focus on 01622 747 325 or visit the website at www.desirefair.com.
