The British Are Coming!

An online exhibition of Silversmiths who currently reside and practice in the UK. The goal is to show the best current contemporary silversmith work from the UK. This exhibition aims to explore if there is a specific British silversmith style that is different from silversmithing styles in other countries.

The works submitted have been made from 2011 onwards.


MA in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Related Products is the title of our course programme, which the jewellers and designer-makers featured below have experienced. This is however a very limited and traditional description when one considers the wide variety of studio methods, artefacts and products that are within the province of the designer who has knowledge and expertise in the area of personal ornaments, body signification and decorative metal objects.
