Last year’s Goldsmiths’ Fair was particularly important for Jennifer Saker who presented her collection to the public for the very first time.
Saker’s 22ct yellow gold ring was even one of the 20 pieces hand-selected by guest curator and renowned architect, Zaha Hadid at the event. “Being selected by Zaha Hadid as her personal highlight of the show was a true honour,” says Jennifer. It is perhaps unsurprising that Zaha took an interest in Jennifer’s jewels considering how architecture and engineering play such a crucial role in her designs.
Similarly, it was her love of architecture that pointed Jennifer in the direction of Millennium Bridge for her Hot 100 profile picture. She explains: “I love how buildings and structures are held together – the Millennium Bridge’s cable anchors are a good example of being able to see this with uninterrupted lines, they are so strong, most people just walk past them to take in the view from the bridge – I think they are just as fascinating as the view of the city.”
Jennifer couldn’t be happier that others are now recognising her dream and passion for creating precious works of art and is looking forward to showcasing more designs at this year’s Goldsmiths’ Fair. “I feel that for the fi rst year I have been in business the brand has started to be recognised by key influencers both within the press, buying circles and private collectors,” she explains.
“I hope to follow on the success of 2014 with even more in 2015. I am exhibiting at the Goldsmiths’ Fair again this year and as well as being picked to promote the Fair with my work on its campaign. I am also working with stockists mainly within the capital but hope to expand to European galleries towards the end of the year.”
When Jennifer is not at the bench she loves rock climbing, having spent 12 months scaling the Patagonia and Arenales Mountains in South America and the Rocky Mountains in North America before founding her brand.
