The annual jewellery showcase Shine will return to The Goldsmiths’ Centre in London this autumn, presenting the work of 10 up-and-coming British jewellery designers and silversmiths.
Shine is now in its sixth year, and this year will run from September 19th to November 1st, 2019, at the Goldsmiths’ Centre, which is just a few minutes’ walk from Farringdon station. During this time, the jewellery exhibition will be supported by a series of selling events and experiences that will allow visitors to touch the jewels, meet the designers and buy direct from the makers.
The designers selected for the 2019 Shine showcase are: Aillie Anderson; Akansha Sethi; Aurelie Dellasanta; Elena Lara Bonanomi; Ella Fearon-Low; Harriet Morris; Holly O’Hanlon; Leszek Sikon; Suzanne Seed; and William Sharp.
A highlight of the Shine festival will take place at the nearby Goldsmiths’ Hall during Goldsmiths’ Fair. Here, design and art critic Corinne Julius will host breakfast sessions on September 24th and October 1st during which the 10 designers will introduce their work and share stories of how the pieces were conceived and made.
“Shine is an opportunity to meet the best emerging talent in jewellery and silversmithing,” says The Goldsmiths’ Centre public programme manager Charlotte Dew. “The 10 makers in the 2019 showcase demonstrate innovative and high-quality approaches to design and make high-quality work. Their enormous potential and talent is evident. We believe they are the ones to watch.”
Details and tickets for further upcoming selling events at the Goldsmiths’ Centre in October and November will be released shortly. Full details can be found here. (Main image on home page: Monkey King necklace by Aurelie Dellasanta)
