Last night saw the launch of the sale of my 'embrace' necklace at the East London Design Store. The Valentine's event featured my winning piece and several runners up in the 'Love Token' design competition.
When London Jewellery Workshop (where I first started making jewellery) launched the competition last year, I knew I was up against stiff competition. Nina Gilbey and her team have trained and tutored some very talented jewellers. So when I had heard that mine was the winning design, I was extremely flattered.
Even more flattering, was that the winning piece was not only chosen by Nina, but also Della Tinsley of East London Design Show and Treasure. Her store recently won 'Best New Shop' in the Best of Hackney awards. And it's easy to see why.
