Jewellery manufacturer Hockley Mint has issued a final call for entries into its design competition, which was launched in February 2017 to mark the British jewellery manufacturer’s 25th year in business.
A significant number of entries have been received to date, but with the competition closing date of 5pm on Friday June 2, less than a week now remains for designers to submit their creations.
Hockley Mint is inviting both students and more established designers to help commemorate its silver anniversary year by designing a unique, statement piece of silver jewellery or silverware that represents Hockley Mint’s standing in the industry. Designs can be submitted as sketches, drawings or CAD files.
The winning piece will be made in Fairtrade silver and may contain elements of Fairtrade gold. It will be cast by Hockley Mint and unveiled at the International Jewellery London (IJL) show in September.
It will then be displayed in Hockley Mint’s refurbished boardroom to commemorate the 25th anniversary. The winner will be presented with a version of the design at the IJL show, and will also receive prize money of £250 and a year’s free insurance cover courtesy of TH March. TH March will also offer all entrants to the competition a 10% discount on insurance cover.
Gary Wroe, managing director of Hockley Mint, comments: “This is an opportunity to demonstrate the unparalleled extent of services Hockley Mint offers as a British jewellery manufacturer, and we are looking forward to welcoming more entries from the talented designers we are lucky to have in this industry.”
