GOLDSMITHS’ CRAFT AND DESIGN COUNCIL AWARDS 2019
We are delighted to announce that at the Goldsmiths Craft and Design Council Awards in February, Louise Sorrell of Sam James Ltd (pictured below) made a clean sweep, winning three awards. First she was awarded the Gold Award Junior in the Engravers, Die Sinkers and Seal Engravers section for her stunning masterpiece vase. Then Louise outshone the competition to win the Junior Award (which is chosen from the gold award junior winners across all sections).
Finally Louise and her master, Sam Marsden, were awarded the prestigious Theo Fennell Apprentice/Master award.
We would like to congratulate Louise on an exceptionally beautiful, wonderfully designed and skilled engraved piece. Her trio of awards was truly deserved!
We would also like to congratulate Megan Rigby, apprentice at Rebus Signet Rings, who entered for the first time and was awarded the Bronze Award Junior.
