Jewellery blogger & EC One staffer Kathryn Bishop to join magazine.
Professional Jeweller will welcome a new member to the editorial team in January with the arrival of Kathryn Bishop.
Bishop has been working in the jewellery industry for eight years, most recently at London retailer EC One where she works with owners Jos and Alison Skeates on the PR and marketing for its boutiques. She also runs Like Gold Dust, an inspiring jewellery blog that has developed a cult following.
Professional Jeweller editor Rachael Taylor said: “I’ve known Kathryn for many years after meeting her when she came to do work experience with me on a jewellery industry title that I worked at previously. During her internship I was impressed with her technical knowledge of the trade and her unyielding passion for jewellery design, and have since followed her work through Like Gold Dust and EC One. When the time came for Professional Jeweller to expand she was the obvious choice.”
Joining the team in January, Bishop will work on both Professional Jeweller and WatchPro, a new watch magazine launching within the main magazine in January.
Bishop said: “It’s with much delight that I’m joining the Professional Jeweller and WatchPro team as we move into the new year. I’m thoroughly looking forward to working with and getting to know all the new and old faces, the brilliant companies and the individuals who keep the UK jewellery industry dazzling. My experience within the industry goes back almost eight years and I’m pleased to be taking this step into a new role working with Professional Jeweller’s inspiring editor Rachael Taylor.”
