Guest speaker Cindy Dennis Mangan to discuss collectives at event.

JeDeCo (Jewellery Designers’ Collective) founder Cindy Dennis Mangan will be the guest speaker at this month’s London Jewellery Meetup in Hatton Garden, focusing on collaborations and collectives in the industry.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with other members of the jewellery industry, while learning more about Dennis Mangan’s experiences and hearing her advice on starting a design collective.


Time will also be set aside for guests to ask their own questions.

Dennis Mangan graduated from the GIA in 2006, with diplomas in technical fine jewellery design and diamond grading. She successfully launched her platinum jewellery design business, Dennis & Lavery in 2007, before founding JeDeCo in 2009.

JeDeCo is a collaborative business mentoring group for independent jewellery designers. The collective’s members can participate in shared business building opportunities and self-manage a shared retail space showcasing their work in London’s Oxo Tower on Southbank

Attending the Meetup is free but spaces are limited, so guests are encouraged to sign up and secure their place.

The next London Jewellery Meetup will take place on September 10 2014 at 6.30pm, at the Sir Christopher Hatton pub, 4 Leather Lane, EC1N 7RA.
