Silver Treats for Your Christmas Tree

“Robin” by Chris Perry, £65.

WITH Christmas rapidly approaching, the designers of Who’s Who in Gold and Silver, the Goldsmiths’ Company’s on-line directory of leading British silversmiths, have once again conjured a glittering array of handmade silver decorations to add a sparkle to any Christmas tree.

This year’s selection features some innovative twists on classical designs including Glitterati’s vivacious silver star and Kirsty Eaglefield’s two-piece snowflake. Chris Perry, meanwhile, has followed up last year’s dove design with a charming Robin ‘Gold’ breast.

All of the decorations are exquisitely crafted from hallmarked solid silver and are available from as little as £39.

The Goldsmiths’ Company’s Who’s Who website gives members of the public direct access into the workshops of Britain’s leading designers in gold and silver, enabling them to source distinctive and original jewellery, silverware or works of art.

The website is flexible and straightforward and offers a variety of search facilities – searches can be by artist, product or keyword, and can also be defined by product area or by the Quick Search option.

The Designers and Makers Index provides comprehensive information on each subscriber giving full contact and biographical details, in addition to providing lists of stockists where applicable and links to the designers’ own personal websites, plus other useful, related websites.

A section entitled How to Purchase and Commission gives helpful guidelines and, with excellent colour images illustrating the incredible variety of work represented by each of the designers represented on line, the Who’s Who website is a “virtual” shop window 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – accessible worldwide.
