Please see the interview below regarding Victoria’s nomination.
Competition judge, Hilary Alexander of the Daily Telegraph, describes what she is looking for in a Bright Young Gem: “I look for somebody obviously who has got the craft skills and some training in jewellery or silversmithing or goldsmithing. But at the same time I’m really looking for someone who has got a different approach and who is considering different materials. It could be rope, it might be plastic, it might be recycling things but I think you’re looking for something that is fabulous and unusual and beautifully made.”
