Kate Rieppel, head of academy, the British Academy of Jewellery, said: “I am so proud of everything that our students have achieved over the last year, and it’s wonderful to be able to share their talent and creativity with the wider jewellery industry through our Final Show 2021.
“The past 12 months have presented a lot of unexpected challenges, but our students have still been able to spend time at the bench and have continued to wow me with their determination and technical skill.”
