‘Fire & Facets’, New Opal Jewellery Exhibition at Gill Wing

‘Fire & Facets’ is the latest exhibition at the newly refurbished Gill wing Jewellery Gallery on Upper Street , London. Guest curated by New York Jewellery Blogger ‘A Thousand Facets’, the show features unique designs from leading contemporary jewellers featuring bespoke gems from Australia’s famous Lightning Ridge hand cut by palaeontology student Loren Gurche.

Disa was asked to take part in this collaboration at the beginning of the year. After selecting an Opal from Gurche’s collection she set about designing a ring that would best demonstrate the unique features of the Opal. It is set in 18k yellow Gold which adds a warmth to the piece and highlights the value of the Opal. The use of a rectangular cut Iolite creates a contrast with the organic shape of the Opal and picks out the purple and blue flashes within the stone. A wide, heavily textured band is reminiscent of the striking landscape that the Opal originates from.

Last night was the grand opening of the show at Gill Wing Jewellery. The fizz was flowing and visitors were treated to a multi-sensory celebration of the mysterious & beautiful opal. With over 20 Jewellery Designers, award winning perfumer Sarah McCartney at 4160 Tuesdays London, complemented by Richard Weston’s Opal print scarves, it was a busy and fun evening.

The exhibition continues to 16th September 2018, the knowledgable and welcoming staff at Gill Wing will talk you through the work designed especially for ‘Fire & Facets’, prepare to fall in love with the mysterious and enticing Opal!

Disa Allsopp to Exhibit her Jewellery in New York, August 2018 at NY Now

We are excited to be returning to New York next month to take our latest collection of jewellery to NY Now, the high-end gift fair. Now a regular participant of the show, Disa will be on the stand for the whole show, held at the Javits Centre.

New York in August is fantastic as the sun shines every day and the restaurants and bars are buzzing. A favourite place to relax after a long day at NY Now is to walk along the beautiful High Line, a fantastic example of repurposed architecture and public planning. This takes you all the way down to the exciting Chelsea District, where you can visit Chelsea Market and sample all types of delicious food.

But what we really love about visiting New York is the response of visitors to NY Now when they come to our stand. The enthusiasm people show for unique, handmade, contemporary Craft and Design is inspiring!

We hope you can join us on our Stand 1363C at the Javits Centre between 12th – 15th August 2018.
