1. Zoe Arnold

Rather uniquely, Arnold is inspired by objects in her writing and poetry – such as precious metals and gemstones – which she incorporates into her pieces using traditional jewellery making skills. The result is pieces that are simultaneously classic, and inspiringly inventive and original.

On of the original pioneer's of fair-trade gold, Decker's pieces are bold, modern, minimal and striking. Her architectural approach has earned her recognition from prestigious galleries, the international press, collectors and a place at the coveted Goldsmiths' Fair.

3. Andrew Lamb

Lamb is directly inspired by nature – namely the organic patterns and details of the world, which so often go unnoticed. The designer combines this passion with his love for textiles and incorporates a metal "woven textile" to each piece he creates.
