This year's cohort of eight talented designers showcasing their new collections are:

 

Rachel Balfour Jewellery

Rachel established her fine-jewellery brand with the belief that jewellery is much more than an accessory. She believes that the individual pieces we choose to wear have meaning and significance and are often an expression of love, loyalty and inner strength. Designed to last many lifetimes, her jewellery has a beautiful refined edge, as timeless as it is contemporary. Rachel’s latest collection is inspired by the art-work of Peter Max, an artist strongly associated with the counter culture and psychedelic movements of the 1960’s and 70’s.

SAM HAM

SAM HAM is a new unisex fine jewellery brand  that is all about invoking humour, power and self confidence in people whatever their gender. Starting its journey 12 months ago in Clerkenwell, the brand reappropriates traditional notions of masculinity and femininity in all of its pieces. This October, SAM HAM is launching its second collection in 2 parts. BALLZ expands the initial collection from last year to include  cufflinks, bracelets, rings, pendants and necklaces. The pieces are all about standing your ground  and having  the stones to chase  what  you want. SHERIFF - a collection of necklaces, bracelets, rings, cufflinks and brooches that play on the motif of the classic ‘Sheriff  Star‘, a symbol  of authority but with comic re-appropriations.
