Jewellery moguls EC One have launched there Unsigned Competition for its second year. A fantastic opportunity for jewellers to get there work noticed and the chance to have EC One stock there pieces. Here are my picks from their chosen top ten ...
Clarice Price Thomas - From her debut collection 'Time Never Stops' inspired and created from a fascination with horology and time keeping.
Tom Wilson - Combining uniformity and repetitive pattern Wilson has used a range of 2D and 3D CAD/CAM techniques mixed with traditional jewellery making to create modern pieces.
Julie Impens - Inspired by Marie Antoinette and the Rococo era, Impens has taken elements of highly lavish decorative themes and created them in a graphic modern way.
Last year, Myia Bonner's graphic take on diamond jewellery led her to be crowned winner of the very first EC One Unsigned Competition. Take a look at her pieces now stocked by EC One.
Good luck to all the top ten, cant wait to see who the winner will be!
