IJL KickStart application deadline fast approaching

The deadline to submit applications for International Jewellery London’s (IJL) KickStart initiative 2017 is on Monday, April 10.

The annual mentoring programme, run by IJL and co-sponsored by the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ), encourages and supports 10 up-and-coming British jewellery designers.

The top 10 finalists will benefit from exhibiting on a group stand at IJL 2017, taking place at London’s Olympia from September 3 to 5, 2017.

Event director for IJL Sam Willoughby explained: “KickStart is a fantastic pool of talent, which consistently impresses with astounding creative flair and technical ingenuity.

“First started in 2009, it is the natural next step on the ladder for the new generation of trend-setting jewellers, many of whom have previously been featured in our Bright Young Gems platform for jewellery graduates.”
