IJL show director, Sam Willoughby, explains the new format for voting: “This year, once again, we are extremely pleased with our KickStarters. All ten are extremely talented and very different. I look forward to seeing who comes out tops. Fingers at the ready and good luck everyone!”


This year’s line up comprises Farrah Al-Dujaili (Oddical), Alice Barnes, Becky Dockree,  Raliegh Goss, Emily Kidson, Lucy Spink (Lucy Spink Jewellery), Claire Macfarlane, Rhona McCallum, Ana Simoes (Muscari Jewellery) and Heather Woof.
