  • Winner Jewellery Lover Up to 18 years

    Sparkling Star Necklace by Jack Fox (8) from Montacute, Somerset

    I was inspired to create my necklace the 'Sparkling Star' as I am always doing art; drawing and making things out of material. I chose to use the stars in my design as they felt very unique and everlasting, and special for people to wear.

  • Winner Jewellery Lover Over 18

    The Whispering Lilies Necklace by Pooja Singh from Swindon, Wiltshire

    The idea behind 'The Whispering Lilies' was to make a commercially viable design which is wearable and something which any woman can carry with aplomb. Nature in itself is a huge source of inspiration, so I derived my inspiration from the shape and form of the beautiful flower Lily.

  • Winner Student Designer

    Strelitzia Necklace and Earrings by Roger Maaraoui (20) from Lebanon

    Strelitzia, also known as bird of paradise, is a flower that has inspired me for a long time. Since I was a child, I used to observe it and explore its beauty. My aim with the Strelitzia collection is to capture the lightness of the flower illustrated through graceful lines and a touch of colour.

  • Winner Current Jewellery Designer

    Orbital Ring by Elizabeth Finney from Preston, Lancashire

    Inspired by the planet Saturn, the Orbital ring symbolises the way loved ones' lives revolve around each other. Each white stone represents a moon or or family member that interacts with the wearer. I have designed the ring so that the gold coloured settings around each of the stones act as flares of light reflected from the sun. Saturn’s golden rings are depicted by wires wrapping around the main band and moons, thus showing the connections and commitments between loved ones.
