Goldsmiths’ Crafts & Design Council Awards 2022
The central aim of the Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council is to promote excellence in the industry through its prestigious annual awards. Diverse and wide ranging, the skill set of British jewellery, goldsmithing, silversmithing and allied trades is showcased annually as part of this unique competition. All submissions entered into the competition are judged by skilled and experienced practitioners drawn from their specialist fields of expertise within the profession. Through this process of peer inspection and scrutiny, work is endorsed by professionals to the highest standards and objectives set by the Council, thus validating the status and quality of these awards. The 2022 awards saw Melanie win the highest level of Gold in the Conceptual Jewellery Category for her Nacre Necklace. The winning piece was displayed at the Goldsmiths’ Hall in London as part of the The GC&DC Awards Exhibition 2022.
