Cast your Poeple’s Choice vote via the Professional Jeweller homepage.

Voting for the IJL and BJA KickStarter People’s Choice prize is hotting up, offering one of this year’s 10 designers a free exhibition package at IJL 2015.

The 10 KickStart designers were recently revealed as Sophie Alice Hirsch, Cardinal of London, Jeanne Marell, Keep Me Jewellery by Tom Blake, Charlotte Valkeniers, Rosie May Jewellery, Majdan Rocks, Kristjan Eyjolsson, Cara Tonkin and Agnieszka Maksymiuk Jewellery.

Votes can be cast via the poll on the Professional Jeweller homepage, or through the IJL website. Voting is running for one month until June 6 2014. Twitter users can tweet the name of the KickStarter they’d like to vote for with the hashtag #KickStartVote, while Instagram users can post a picture of their favourite KickStarter or a piece of their jewellery, with the same #KickStartVote hashtag. Facebook users can cast their votes via a poll hosted on the IJL Facebook page.

This year’s 10 KickStart will showcase their work as part of a British Jewellers’ Association (BJA) supported stand at IJL at Olympia in London, which opens at the end of August for three days. Each KickStarter will receive mentoring in the run up to the show, with the lucky People’s.
