Designer of Excellence reports positive retailer feedback at show.
Emerging jewellery designer Charmian Beaton took advantage of the first part of her Designer of Excellence prize yesterday when she exhibited at Houlden Group’s buying meeting in London.
Beaton said that the reaction to her jewellery from Houlden retailers was "better than expected", adding that she had a lot of positive feedback with retailers about her designs.
The jeweller, who was awarded Houlden Designer of Excellence at The Jewellery Show earlier this month, presented a range of jewellery at the show with moveable parts in silver and solid gold.
As 2013’s Houlden Designer of Excellence Beaton was given a free stand at the buyers’ meeting and her work will go on tour to Houlden retailers alongside runners up Arabel Lebrusan, Anja Kittelsen, Catherine Budd, Erica Sharpe, Laura Gravestock and Rachel Galley
