More about this competition

Are you studying jewellery, silversmithing or a related subject at HND, BA or MA level? The Goldsmiths’ Precious Metal Grant offers you the opportunity to design and produce a piece of your own work in precious metals worth £750.

The Goldsmiths’ Centre’s Precious Metal Grant is an annual competition which provides exactly £750 of precious metal bullion to a maximum of 12 silversmithing and 8 jewellery recipients. Its purpose is to provide 20 students the opportunity to design and make jewellery, silverware or associated piece(s) in precious metal which illustrates their skills as a designer and maker.

By entering the scheme, you will benefit from working with high value precious metals and increase your understanding of their properties. There may also be the opportunity for successful applicants to spend time working with a Goldsmiths’ Company Apprentice in order to improve one of the making skills required to produce your piece(s).
To be eligible you must currently be registered on your final year of a UK goldsmithing, jewellery, silversmithing or related course at HND, BA or MA level.
