Six of our exhibitors have previous Top Drawer experience and are planning to build upon previous successes at the show. \r\n\r\n\u201cThe others are presenting their work to Top Drawer\u2019s trade audience for the first time. All are hoping to gain new stockists for their work, or to attract commission or exhibition opportunities.\u201d\r\n\r\nJeweller Amy Leigh from Leicester, uses environmentally friendly materials, including eco-resin and recycled silver, to produce collections that showcase her signature technique of pouring molten pewter into water. She will be launching her new Prism Collection at the show.\r\n\r\nTrevor Forrester will present a jewellery collection that includes colourful gems and high carat yellow gold, alongside the launch of his new jewellery designs using argentium. \r\n\r\nTrevor established his first studio in 1990 and ran a successful jewellery business in the UK before relocating to New Zealand for 12 years.
