Professional Jeweller is running a competition with contemporary jewellery selling show 'Treasure', for three young designers to win a stand at their show during London Jewellery Week. The competition is back for its second year and Professional Jeweller has now revealed the shortlist of 10 contemporary jewellery designers who will battle it out online to win one of three stands.

The really exciting news is that GoJD member Priya is one of the shortlisted Jewellers! We caught up with her yesterday and asked her for her thoughts about being shortlisted in the competition. Says Priya,' I'm not usually lost for words but at the moment I'm in shock! I'm proud that the panel of industry experts liked my work to take it this far.'

Professional Jeweller received a huge number of entries this year - more than three times as many as in 2010, which were whittled down to a shortlist of just 10 by a panel of industry experts.

They will now face an online vote at that will decide which three will host their own stand during the five-day show at LJW absolutely free of charge. Each of the finalists exudes talent and the shortlist features a variety of styles from 16th century French fairytales to the souks of the Middle East, and a variety of techniques including photo etching and wax casting.

The top three will be entirely chosen by public vote, so take a good look at the gallery of their designs by clicking here and vote for the designer you want to win a stand, in their poll on the Professional Jeweller homepage. The three designers who receive the highest number of votes will win a free stand at Treasure – the perfect chance for any aspiring designer to raise their profile, meet potential retail buyers and experience selling directly to consumers. The poll ends on Tuesday, so get voting soon!

(Good luck Priya!)
