The Guild of Jewellery Designers has paired with members of the British jewellery trade to offer additional support to their consistently growing group of members.
The guild has been seeing membership grow, on average, 30% per year and is now collaborating with British jewellery designers and artisans to support and networking opportunities within its membership base as a non-profit making organisation.
Jewellers are able to subscribe to the guild initially on a free of charge basis and can upgrade at any time to take advantage of its partner discounts, insurance and marketing opportunities.
The British Craft Trade Fair has recently signed up as supplier partner to the guild and gold members can now take a 10% discount from stand rates offered by the organisation. This could mean savings upwards from £56+ VAT for a small stand at the 2018 Fair, which is take place April 8 to 10.
Margeret Bunn, CEO of the fair said: “We are really pleased to be working with The GoJD and feel very positive that the relationship will benefit subscribers as well as the GoJD.
“Existing members of the organisation, I am sure will be interested in exhibiting with us, we are always looking for new emerging talent wanting to supply trade buyers within the jewellery and home and gift market.”
