2016 saw continued growth for bespoke jewellery throughout the UK and Ireland as GVUK Design, Gemvision and EnvisionTEC distributor reports 30% growth for the year.
The three-month blip immediately after Brexit aside, GVUK Design saw a month on month increase in sales of Gemvision’s Matrix and CounterSketch plus strong sales of EnvisionTEC’s latest Micro Plus 3D printer.
Graham Dicks, GVUK Design director comments on how noticeable new business was for the year with the likes of Hatton Garden based start-up CADsmith Creations and former Holts Academy student and Goldsmiths’ Council award winner Danny Ries accelerating their business potential with Matrix, while established goldsmith MX Jewellery Designs from Dublin expanded their trade with the latest EnvisionTEC Micro 3D printer.
In addition one of their more established clients Weston Beamor added an additional EnvisionTEC Perfactory P4 3D printer to their production facility.
Dicks comments: “It’s great to see local manufacturing expanding and a new generation of talent joining our jewellery industry.”
Jewellery & Watch will see the UK launch of cDLM from EnvisionTEC – a new continuous 3D printer, printing jewellery samples in minutes for the very first time.
