silver and gold

Goldsmiths Fair sparkled last night with work by talented designer-makers.  Held at historic Goldsmiths Hall, the fair is an opportunity to purchase jewellery, sculptural silver and commission new work. 

The Chrysanthemum Brooch above is by Kayo Saito
I was intrigued by this silver inkwell with pools of text by Jonathan Mathew Boyd 

and enjoyed the story-telling in one-off pieces by Barbara Christie

Gerlinde Huth displayed her textural and sculptural jewellery

and the sculptures by Carol Mather were so intricate and expressive.  I'm fond of this tired little salt-carrier! 

The show is on until October 9th with new exhibitors in week two.
