Enjoy a bling filled day at the Desire show
The ever-popular Desire Fair is taking place from 27th to the 29th November 2009 at Winchester. The exhibition is an event at which visitor's can purchase jewellery of all kinds, with prices varying from a few pounds to many thousands.
Desire, which was launched in London four years ago as the UK’s only mixed media jewellery and silversmithing consumer show, has gained a stellar reputation among consumers and exhibitors.
The event at Winchester enables the public to purchase from an exciting range of both emerging British talent as well as the latest designs from more established designer makers. The event promises a huge variety of stylish, unusual and original designs to suit all tastes and with a wide price range, there is something for everyone.
Exhibitors at Winchester have been selected for their innovative craftsmanship which will include jewellers working in gold, silver, aluminium and platinum and incorporating glass, enamel work, gemstones, pearls and beads into their work, making each piece a unique treasure. Many designers are more than happy to discuss bespoke commissions, creating something totally unique for you or can remodel old jewellery to give it a more contemporary feel.
Some of the UK’s finest silversmiths will also be presenting a extraordinary range of functional and decorative silverware including Andrew MacGowan whose recent work has been inspired by travels to Japan, Brett Payne showing his intriguing candlesticks and Louise Chesshire whose stylish silversmithing with exceptional detail given to quality and finish, strongly references the plant world.
For just £4.00 per person, you can see the wonderful selection on sale, whether you’re looking to treat yourself, purchase a unique gift for someone special or commission something for a special occasion, make a date to visit Desire at Winchester.
Opening times for the general public are 12.30 pm – 5.30 pm on Friday and 10 am – 5 pm Saturday and Sunday. For further information contact the organisers on 01622 747 325 or visit the web site at http://www.desirefair.com
