New Designers 2014Time to get ready for a day out! The New Designers exhibition is being held once again at the Business Design Centre in Islington, later this month on 25 - 28 June. As in previous years, the event showcases the work of thousands of creative arts students in the UK, showing off the brightest and best talent in each graduating year: the real joy of the exhibition is knowing that you will see some absolutely exceptional work but not knowing where it will come from or what the style will be.

There are always a few ground breaking innovators who will have experimented with a brand new technique or material (think Kerry Howley's hair necklace and Daniela Cardillo's mouse bone jewellery from previous years) as well as hundreds of jewellery and silversmithing students all presenting their original cutting edge creations. The event is especially relevant to current artists and makers, as it is the emerging creative artists that will be changing the trend and style landscape over the next few years, introducing new shapes, colours and materials into existing tastes and fashions. In short, New Designers provides a barometer for forthcoming trends and tastes for the jewellery industry.

As in previous years, the GoJD will be awarding three Gold Memberships to the most promising students exhibiting at the show as our way of supporting new jewellery artists in the first year of trading. We hope that the array of supplier discounts, PPL insurance and online marketing opportunities will help smooth the path to becoming established as a self employed jeweller.







Running across both Parts, One Year On is always a highly anticipated element of New Designers. It showcases a group of over 50 emerging designers in their first year of business, selected for their entrepreneurial flair and exceptional quality of work. One Year On brings together products that are tipped to be the iconic designs of the future.

Gemma Fabbri, curator for One Year On 2014 has commented:

‘This year’s show is made up of a rich and eclectic mix of highly skilled craft, alongside contemporary
design. Emerging themes include a reappropriation of traditional techniques to create new and
unexpected pieces, while colour inspiration has taken on natural tones often with an injection of a bold
hue. This is my first year curating One Year On, which has always been a really important part of New
Designers. I’m extremely excited about the line-up of designers that we have selected - the level of the
work is high, and its shaping up to be a really inspiring show.’
Highlights from One Year On 2014 will include, amongst others, Anais Paulard’s vibrant unisex jewellery and Hamish Dobbie's sublime decorative silverware and jewellery.
