Dockree will visit Weston Beamor’s production facility in Birmingham as part of her prize, where she will work alongside its CAD team to develop her design into a fully-finished piece in platinum. Not only this, but Weston Beamor has elected to use her design as its entry into this year’s PGI ‘Platinum Trail’ at International Jewellery London (IJL).
Dockree, a former student of Fine Art at London Guildhall University, makes sculptural jewellery, and it was her Angel Wing design that caught the eye of the competition’s judges.
Head of CAD and rapid prototyping at Weston Beamor, Ed Hole, said: “Becky’s design is extremely distinctive and very much of the moment. It has a real rock chic charm, whilst also having appeal to a wider, more sophisticated audience. We believe it will look wonderful in platinum and should create a real stir on the Platinum Trail at IJL.”
Becky Dockree added: “I am enormously excited to have won and am very much looking forward to visiting Birmingham and seeing the whole CAD and rapid prototyping process in action. I feel sure that it will be fascinating and illuminating.
“It is also great news that my piece is to be made into platinum. It’s a metal that all new jewellery designers aspire to work in and this will be a great beginning for me.”
