Time to shine
Luxury British jeweller ROX has launched a nationwide hunt for the next big jewellery designer. The competition, Future Makers, is open to all aspiring jewellery designers and makers, with entrants invited to submit a commercial jewellery design, which will be manufactured by ROX in its workshop. The winner will also receive a four-week internship there.
Kyron Keogh (pictured), co-founder of the company and one of the competition's three judges says, “We truly believe that British jewellery designers are still among the best in the world. Jewellery making is one of the few crafts that remains true to its roots in the modern world. While modern technology has aided design, the traditional techniques have remained consistent. It's traditional craftsmanship that's been passed down for generations that we want to celebrate through our competition, while encouraging entrants to bring a modern twist to the fore.”
Founded in 2002 ROX, has a flagship boutique in Liverpool, specialises in bespoke jewellery, diamond rings and watches. It also stocks a range of luxury brands including Bulgari, Chopard, Hublot, Gucci, TAG Heuer and TUDOR.
