The organiser of the renowned Desire Jewellery and Silversmithing Fairs have announced their 2013 dates and a new venue for their London event.

The London fair, previously held in Richmond Upon Thames, will be taking place at The Kensington Conference and Events Centre from 15-17 March 2013 and the Winchester event will once again be held at the prestigious Guildhall from 15-17 November. The new London venue situated in the heart of Kensington and boasting striking contemporary architecture is just a few minutes’ walk from the underground station.

The event here is sure to be very popular with both exhibitors and visitors given its location in this area of London. Demand for stands is expected to be high.

These mixed media jewellery and silversmithing events where visitors can purchase direct from contemporary designers, select individual jewellers and silversmiths for their superb and innovative craftsmanship and feature emerging British talent as well as more established makers. The fairs have, in the past, featured jewellers working in leather, acrylic, ceramics, paper, glass, copper and wood as well as more traditional silver, gold and platinum jewellery featuring gemstones, pearls, beads and enamelwork. 

In 2013 the London show will also feature a number of stands of interest to the public associated with jewellery and silversmithing and the organisers are keen to hear from colleges offering courses and workshops, magazines, etc. that wish to raise their awareness to the public.
