About Elements – Scotland’s Festival of Jewellery, Silver and Gold

Elements, Scotland’s festival showcase for the finest Jewellery, Silver and Gold will be a chance to see work by 50 of the finest designer makers – with around half from Scotland and half from the rest of the UK.

The event, organised by The Incorporation of Goldsmiths of Edinburgh in partnership with auctioneers Lyon & Turnbull, is the perfect opportunity to buy beautiful Christmas gifts that will be cherished for many years to come.

Attractions include a sales fair with jewellery and silverware from £45 to £15,000 and ranging from affordable brooches and earrings to exquisite one-off pieces, handcrafted using precious metals and gemstones.

There will also be an exhibition of work from 60 silversmiths from the European Silversmithing Forum, HammerClub. Among the pieces on display will be The Common Bowl, which was made at the HammerClub conference in Dundee in June. There will also be Renewal, an exhibition curated by The Scottish Gallery showcasing work by globally acclaimed contemporary jeweller, the late Wendy Ramshaw.
