London based jeweller ‘honoured’ to create bespoke charity collection.
Jewellery designer Bobby White is set to create a bespoke jewellery collection for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the charity that helps bring to life the dreams of children living with terminal illnesses.
White has agreed to design a new bespoke jewellery piece for Make-A-Wish. He said of the project: "It’s a fantastic charity and does incredible work, granting magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening illnesses. I am honoured that Make-A-Wish has invited me to design this special piece."
The bespoke Bobby White collection will go to auction at the Make-A-Wish charity ball which takes place in February next year.
Since its launch in 1986 the charity has granted wishes to more than 7,000 children. Presently more than 20,000 children are living with terminal illnesses in the UK, and this year 1,200 have already had their wishes come true thanks to the charity.
White was selected as a NexGem in the Professional Jewellery Hot 100 2010 and has also been a finalist at the UK Jewellery Awards for Designer of the Year. He has previously collaborated with tailor James Shipton on a cufflinks range called Shipton White.
