Best New Design Award – Week One

Every year at Goldsmiths’ Fair a noted industry expert hand selects a particularly special item from the work on display. At this year’s Goldsmiths’ Fair, Trino Verkade – a consultant with the Sarabande Foundation – selected Lucie Gledhill’s gold curb chain as the best new design, highlighting the precise execution and the unique interpretation of a classic form.

But aside from its craftmanship, what makes the piece worthy of the award is the story of collaboration which lies behind it. Named, Swap 1, the necklace is a collaboration between the maker, Lucie Gledhill and photographer Kasia Wozniak. Having previously worked together combining photography with the process of making fine jewellery, they began working together on Swap 1 in early 2019.
