Goldsmiths’ Fair

Goldsmiths’ fair starts on Monday, this exhibiton gathers together 168 jewellers and silversmiths to display their work in Goldsmiths’ Hall, London. The fair takes place over two weeks with each exhibitor having a week to show their work. The event is open to the public so anyone can go along to see the work, meet the designer and if they wish purchase the items on display.

I think this is one of the great thing about Goldsmiths Fair, not only do you get to see some of the best in handmade jewellery and silverware but you have the opportunity to speak with the maker. Whether to discuss their inspiration and making technique or to embark on a commission.

I’ve never had the opportunity to go along to the fair but hopefully next year I’ll plan a trip to London.

If like me you can’t pop in and have a look at the work, take a look at some of the exhibitors websites. I’ve picked out some work by silversmiths who are participating in the event.
