This year's 10 budding jewellers land at Hatton Garden jewellery shop.
London Rocks is set to host an three month showcase promoting the work of the 2014 British Jewellers’ Association (BJA) and International Jewellery London (IJL) KickStart line up, including Cara Tonkin, Iwona Majdan, Cardinal of London and Kristjan Eyfolffson.
The shop, which opened on Leather Lane in Hatton Garden earlier this summer, aims to promote and support British jewellery designer-makers. Its KickStart showcase opens on October 30, running through to January 31 2015.
It will open with a meet-and-greet launch evening at the shop on October 30, kicking off at 5pm. The evening is a chance to meet the designers in person, namely: Cara Tonkin, Cardinal of London, Tom Blake, Kristjan Eyjolffson, Charlotte Valkeniers, Sophie Alice Hirsch, Rosie May Hofman, Iwona Majdan, Jeanne Marell and Agnieszka Maksymiuk.
London Rock’s co-founder Karl Karter is a trained diamond mounter and jeweller. He opted to open the showroom in Leather Lane as a platform to support fellow jewellers, with a focus on handmade pieces and jewellery that is a "labour of love".
