Anniversary show for Birmingham collective



Centrepiece, a collective formed by successful designer-makers from Birmingham’s jewellery quarter, is to open its tenth anniversary exhibition this week.


Thirty-two designers, jewellery-makers and silversmiths will exhibit at the Symphony Hall and the Town Hall from this Friday until the end of December. Twelve up-and-coming young designers have also been invited to join them.



Centrepiece was formed in 1997 to support self-employed designers and give them an opportunity to showcase their work to a wider audience.



All of Centrepiece’s members have workshops in the city, with most based in the 1.5km radius around the quarter’s famous clock. They have collectively won numerous awards for their work and have commissioned and presented works to the Prince of Wales, Evelyn Lauder and Vivienne Westwood.


Pieces will be available to buy. See www.centrepiece-jewellery.co.uk for more details.
