This is the 2nd annual South African Jewellery Week and this year it will be bigger and better. For this year’s event we will be having a runway show where participating designers will be given an opportunity to showcase their work in front of a live audience. There will be 2 categories for the show which are:
- New talent category (University students and apprentices)
- Professional category (professionals working in industry)
The event is open to young and ambitious designers, as well as, established jewellers. Designers are expected to create wearable, bold and expressive statement jewellery collections. SAJW affords young jewellery talent an opportunity to impress audiences with their skill alongside established jewellery designers. The work should be unique, versatile and relevant to the South African market. Along with the beautiful jewellery that will be showcased, the event intends to highlight contemporary South African jewellery and for consumers to witness the value in the work jewellers do.
