London Jewellery SchoolToday we are launching a new competition on the GoJD in collaboration with the London Jewellery School who are generously donating a gift voucher worth £132, which will cover the majority of their wide range of one-day courses.
The London Jewellery School, located near London’s Hatton Garden jewellery quarter, offers a wide range of day courses taught by professional jewellers in a fun and creative environment.


There are classes for all ability and experience levels; this could be your opportunity to try out a completely new material or technique!
 
The classes include traditional silversmithing techniques, beading and wirework as well as glassresin, Perspex and precious metal clay. Some combine techniques or materials, inspiring the theme of this competition – mixed media.

Entries can be of any type of jewellery that you choose and of any size, shape or style, but they must include more than one type of material in their construction.

If you would like to enter this competition with a piece that you’ve designed and made yourself, simply post an image of it on the GoJD Forum thread or GoJD Facebook page to enter the competition, leaving a brief description if you wish.
