Disa goes digital with Goldsmiths’ Fair! Posted on July 15, 2020 by Disa Allsopp This Autumn Goldsmiths’ Fair goes digital! Disa has been honoured to have been a regular exhibitor at Goldsmiths’ Fair for the past few years. One of the highlights of the UK Jewellery industry’s calender, Goldsmiths’ Fair has been welcoming collectors of fine jewellery through it’s doors since 1982. This year will see the launch of it’s online platform to support business recovery for sole traders and microbusinesses who are making and creating in the UK today. It has never been a more important time to support our vibrant and creative industry and to promote the skills and techniques, handed down over centuries, of our maker community. Richard Fox, Prime Warden (Chairman-equivalent) of the Goldsmiths’ Company, comments, ”At the Goldsmiths’ Company we are committed to supporting our craft and trade for the long term, as we have done for the last seven centuries through some of the worst crises in our history.” And 2020 is no different as the Goldsmiths’ Company will be representing 130 designer makers based in the UK. Double Cornflower Sapphire Ring Harriet Scott, Head of Events at the Goldsmiths’ Company who curates and manages the Fair, says: “Our exhibitors are a selection of the best fine jewellers and contemporary silversmiths creating and making in the UK today. We will be supporting our maker community through their own digital journey and helping to future-proof their businesses during a period when the industry needs our backing more than ever. Creativity will always be one of the most powerful and inspirational responses to a crisis and this will be reflected in the unique, contemporary handcrafted jewellery and silver that will be available exclusively to visitors to the online Fair this September.” Disa is looking forward to sharing her new work with you through Goldsmiths’ Fair Online – we will keep you posted via social media as things progress. The Fair will open its virtual doors from 24 September – 6 October 2020.

This special island really influenced her jewellery designs, visible in her use of colourful gemstones. Disa personally selects each stone such as golden citrines, warm garnets, rubies, sapphires and morganites. White and coloured diamonds are set on unique bands while rough and rare cut gemstones make Disa’s work contemporary and current maintaining a timeless charm. Disa exhibits internationally with stockists throughout the UK, United States, Japan and France. She exhibits at selected retail and trade shows as well as welcoming private clients by appointment to her London Studio.
