Theo Fennell craftsman enjoys clean sweep at Design Awards

Theo Fennell craftsman Simon Coldicott has landed three major accolades at the Goldsmiths’ Craftsmanship and Design Council Awards.

A racing motorcycle design saw Coldicott, who has worked for Theo Fennell for more than 25 years, take home the Senior Award, the Senior Smallworkers Award and Modelmakers Award.

Coldicott hand crafted the sterling silver model of a classic MV Augusta 500cc racing motorcycle, intricately made piece by piece using the skills and techniques gained from over 30 years of experience as a jeweller and goldsmith.
