Dovile Bertulyte wins annual Graduate in the Spotlight competition.
Dovile Bertulyte has been named the winner of Nude Jewellery’s annual Graduate in the Spotlight competition for her gothic ‘Fear of Darkness’ collection.
The Lithuanian-born jewellery designer, who is now based in London, impressed the Mayfair Jeweller and its Twitter and Facebook followers.
Bertulyte commented: ““There is always a narrative in the jewellery I create – every piece, every collection has a story to tell. At the current stage of my creative work I am analysing human phobias and bringing their emotion to my pieces of jewellery.”
“I believe that with Nude Jewellery’s help my dream could become reality,” she added.
Nude Jewellery owner, Nikki Galloway, said of the competition: “Dovile is such a deserved winner, her work is unusual and unique and fits in perfectly with the Nude ethos, it’s different enough to stand out and beautifully quirky, something we love here at Nude Jewellery.”
This year’s competition secured 1,444 votes in total and has sparked the launch of a new ‘Featured Designer’ monthly event promoting both new and established jewellery designers.
Bertulyte was trained at Middlesex University gaining a BA Hons degree in Jewellery and Accessories in 2013. Her collection will be available online and in-store from June until August.
