Just a speedy little post with a few of our snaps from MADE London. We’re all REALLY busy now with just a few days until we set up for our Winter show in the Barbican, but it seems a shame not to share these!
The image above shows our main Designer Jewellers Group stand in the Crypt. There were twelve regular DJG members exhibiting here, with a shelf each, all taking it in turns to be on duty.
We’d been warned about needing good lighting, and our glowing cabinets certainly did the job and looked stunning, but it did get a bit hot! Whoever said heat rises hadn’t been in our arch!
Several more of our members had stands upstairs: this is Henrietta Fernandez at her stand.
Jane Moore was lucky to have a lovely spot by a window!
Li-Chu Wu also had an arch: her’s was on the mezzanine floor.
Petra Bishai was exhibiting with the Dialogue Collective, who had an artful display set made of old doors (which looked great)!
It was also good to see two of our previous guest New Designers: Victoria Walker (who exhibited with us in the Barbican in Winter 2010) …
… and Ruth Laird, one of our New Designers last year.
It was a beautiful venue: we all had a great time, and met lots of new people as well as some of our regular customers. In addition making sales, we also handed out lots of fliers for our show at the Barbican, so we’re looking forward to a busy show this year!
