Student’s work will be sold on charles-green.com.
Birmingham School of Jewellery student Natalie Salisbury has won £250, two weeks’ work experience and will have her work sold through Charles Green’s website after winning the jewellery manufacturer’s student jeweller competition.
Winner Salisbury, from the Isle of Wight, is studying for a BA in Jewellery and Silversmithing Design for Industry at the Birmingham School of Jewellery, part of the Birmingham City University.
Fellow Birmingham School of Jewellery students Natasha Bagnall and Sharon Gayle took second and third prizes.
The Charles Green competition was open to students at the Birmingham School of Jewellery and students were charged with creating bespoke pendants in precious metals with gemstones and diamonds.
Charles Green chairman Tom Green said: “We were extremely impressed, both by the students’ enthusiasm and their designs. They were involved in a realistic process throughout and had to take into account costings, marketing and promotion as well as timescales, on top of mastering rigorous technical skills.
“They came through with flying colours and this will undoubtedly prepare the students for a career within the industry, because the quality of what was produced was of paramount importance, and the standards displayed were of the highest order.”
