Jacobs launches young jewellery designer competition for the second year

Independent jeweller Jacobs has launched its second annual competition to find a young jewellery designer in the Reading area.

Started last year, the now annual competition sees Jacobs partnering with the Bishopsland Educational Trust, a jewellery design postgraduate course provider based in South Oxfordshire.

Four young jewellery designers from Bishopsland will each showcase one piece of silver and one piece of jewellery in Jacobs’ store, competing for best design in each category.

The pieces will be displayed from June 6-27 and the public will be able to view and try the designs, voting for their favourite design in each category. Additionally, a number of Bishopsland alumni, now designers in their own right, will be exhibiting their work, though not in competition.

The competition is also supported by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths and HS Walsh, a supplier of tools and equipment to the jewellery and watch industries.
