We all collect life experiences that inspire us. Meet five early career jewellers, Alice Biolo, Rachael Plassard, Sarah Wilmott, Wenyin Jiang, Niamh Wright as they take centre stage and share their fascinating stories in the limelight. They’ve recently taken part in business training as part of Spotlighting Getting Started and are excited to tell you about their career journey, jewellery practice and inspiration behind their work.

By listening in to our online Meet the Maker events, you’re not only championing the best newcomers in the jewellery and silversmithing industry. You’re also helping them to grow in confidence, whilst finding out what it takes to start out as a jeweller or silversmith. 


Our Spotlighting Getting Started programme helps start-ups to put what they have learnt during Getting Started Online, a one-week introduction to business course, into action. Through practical assignments, participants learn how to photograph their work, speak live to camera and prepare their pieces for our annual Spotlighting Getting Started exhibition.

We run our events in person at the Goldsmiths’ Centre and online, so that as many of our community as possible can exchange ideas, learn from industry experts, and form valuable connections across the UK. We do not record these events, or broadcast them when they are in person, to encourage the open sharing of ideas and experiences and preserve confidentiality.
