The Infinite Fold - Zoe Veness
Veness’s jewellery combines elements of pattern, overlay and repetition to achieve rhythm and harmony in her carefully balanced forms and compositions.

Cook & Co; Antiquities for the Future – Octavia Cook
Cook and Co was self consciously established in 2003 as a fictitious and irreverent family jewellery company for the aggrandisement of Cook and her ideas. This it has proven to be, and it has become what is more, a valuable tool by which she mines the themes of beauty, decay, providence and value within contemporary jewellery practice.

Informing Facets- Regine Schwarzer – new jewellery
Embracing the unpredictable and the unexpected Schwarzer uses traditional faceting of gem stones to subvert expectations by selecting stones with impurities. Cutting her stones carefully she reveals their innermost individuality, emphasizing flaws trapped within, rather than cutting stones only to reveal the scintillating properties.
