Love in the time of coronavirus | Hamilton & Inches
With schools across the UK showing no clear signs of reopening, children across Scotland have been encouraged to get creative and take part in a unique drawing competition to design their own special piece of jewellery with Edinburgh jeweller and silversmiths, Hamilton & Inches.
The jewellers have tasked children to design their own jewellery creation, from a single piece such as a necklace, earrings, bracelet, or ring to a full matching set or piece of silverware. The drawing must be accompanied with notes to describe the piece in detail and where their inspiration has come from.
Since 1866, Hamilton & Inches crafted luxury jewellery and silverware in the heart of Edinburgh and has held a Royal Warrant for over 120 years. The traditional workshops remain above the showroom on George Street to this day and house generations of award-winning craftsmen and women.
The winner will have the chance to experience their drawing come to life in the workshops where the brand’s expert jewellers and silversmiths will work with the winner to make their unique piece in sterling silver.
“We understand that this is a challenging time for everyone and especially for parents of young children. We hope this will give families the chance to get involved in a fun and creative activity together. Many of our jewellers and silversmiths started designing and drawing from a young age so this may even inspire the next member of our talented team.”
“We wish everyone taking part in the competition the very best of luck and look forward to seeing your entries.”
Jonathan Payne, Managing Director at Hamilton & Inches.
