Designer and retailer to work on promoting UK jewellery trade.
Sheffield jeweller Jessica Flinn has been co-opted onto the national committee of the British Jewellers’ Association (BJA).
She will now work with the committee on ways to protect the growth and prosperity of UK jewellery and silverware suppliers.
25-year-old Flinn has been developing her own brand in the UK, winning partnerships with The Jewellery Channel and Argos, as well as opening her own retail premises in Sheffield, selling her and other designers’ work.
She was named a Professional Jeweller Hot 100 NexGem in 2012 and she was recently a finalist in the Sheffield Business Awards. Flinn said: “To be a part of the national committee of the BJA is an enormous accolade and one that means so much to me.
“I have only been in the industry for three years and now I am being asked to represent young designers and makers across the country, which is an enormous challenge but one that I really look forward to taking up.”
