Ten jewelers from the UK, including names such as Sarah Herriot and Yen, gathered at the Elsa Vanier Gallery in Paris to showcase their latest collections and jewelery in an exhibition titled "Un printemps anglais" (French for "English Spring") , which was organized with the support of Goldsmiths.
Elsa Vanier Gallery is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2013 with an exhibition showcasing the work of ten exceptional jewelery artists, each with a unique, unmistakable style.
All jewelers have been selected and invited to present the full range of styles of their pieces, and to prove once again that talent is an integral part of creating true English masterpieces.
Among the invited designers will showcase their work: Jacqueline Cullen, Rie Taniguchi, Josef Koppmann and Jo Hayes-Ward.
The project is backed by the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, an institution created by royal charter in 1327, which has since been responsible for checking the quality of the gold and silver (and more recently platinum and palladium) traded in Great Britain, and has played a major role in modern jewelry market.
The exhibition "Un printemps anglais" opened on March 22 and will run until April 30, 2013.
