Showcase celebrates students who have excelled since graduating.
Jewellery designer Nicola Crawford will showcase her collections at the One Year On show held at New Designers later this month, having been selected for the exhibit as one of a number of jewellery graduates to excel since finishing their degrees in 2011.
The show will include jewellery, product and textile designers that, since graduating, have moved their businesses and designs forward.
Crawford’s will show her new With Love collection that is said to have been inspired by the illegible handwriting on an old postcard sent in 1908 that was signed ‘with love’.
Her jewellery featured jumbles of letters that, on closer inspection, spell out loving phrases.
Crawford said: “I’m really excited to be taking part in this renowned event, showing alongside some of the best new design talent. It will be invaluable for me to get feedback on my designs.”
She graduated from the University for the Creative Arts where she gained a first in silversmithing, goldsmithing and jewellery. Since then Crawford has shown her work at several galleries across the UK, have won online stockists including Boticca and was also chosen to exhibit in the Goldsmiths’ Centre’s opening exhibition.
One Year On will take place at the Business Design Centre in London’s Islington on June 28 to 30 and will also include work by jewellery graduates Filipa Oliveira, Kate Gilliland, Greig Alderman, Rhiannon Lewis and Catherine Hendy.
