The future stars
In an event celebrating both the creativity and craftsmanship as well as the past, present and future of British jewellery, the Leopard Awards also saw the launch of a new mentoring programme for emerging designers.
Looking for the best in tomorrow’s designers, in partnership with The Prince’s Trust, the mentorship programme will award young craftspeople and aspiring jewellery designers the opportunity to train in the workshops and studios of the London Leopards.
Preserving Forever by investing in the future, the brief given to the designers was to design a piece of jewellery inspired by the spirit of London. The winning designs will be produced under the guidance of four of the Leopards and then go on to be sold at their own stores and boutiques, with all proceeds from sales donated to The Prince’s Trust.
