'All That Glitters: Britain's Next Jewellery Star'
BBC Two is launching a new talent show in search of Britain's next jewelry star. The show is a talent search in the historic Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, UK. Eight aspiring jewellers are invited to a workshop, where they will have to complete two challenges to impress the judges. These challenges will include making bespoke pieces and selling them on eBay, as well as demonstrating their skills to real clients.
Last week's 'Bespoke' challenge was all about alternative materials, so it was no surprise that Tamara and Lee were the first to leave. The challenge required the jewellers to design and make a pair of cocktail rings using a material they had never used in jewellery making before - a base metal. The ring had to be a size M, too, and the judges switched off their lights. Now, jewellers have to step up their game to win the next 'Bespoke' challenge.
Hugo as jeweller of the week
Hugo Dawson is a graduate of the RTFJ's five-year apprenticeship in jewellery making. He works with Richard to create bespoke pieces. He created a custom duster ring for Bree Runway, based on the one Missy Elliot wore. Hugo shared a photo of the ring on Instagram. The piece won Hugo a silver award at the Goldsmiths Craft and Design Council awards.
Naomi Smith as trainee goldsmith
The unscripted show "All That Glitters" features a hopeful goldsmith, Naomi Smith. Currently in the promotion of the show, she is studying at Aurum Jewelers and understudying for the Applied Jewelry Professional Program at the Gemological Institute of America. She recently visited Make Your Mark at the London's Goldsmiths' Hall, where she found her love of working with metals. However, she isn't ready to give up her dream of working in the field.
