Over 80 designers exhibit work in a variety of materials and they come from almost every corner of the World.   The selection this year, offers the main jewellery exhibition plus a Specials section devoted to mainly one-off larger pieces including small objects and silversmithing. As usual their will also be a Men's section specialising in work made with men in mind.   And this year a new section called Dazzle in Stitches, showing the work of five of the most internationally respected contemporary embroiderers who work in figurative and abstract pictures for the walls. Added to this a designer commissioned to make one-off mirrors and you have a wonderful mix of the most exciting new work available anywhere in the world.  Over 3,000 individial pieces make up the whole.

Standing out this year, are many talented youngsters plucked straight from their college degree shows - they include Anna Wales, Jan Rooney and  Momoko Kumai.  Along with the more established designers such as Jane Adam, Elisabeth Bone, Lilian Busch, John Field and Lesley Strickland.

No wonder that most of the major national broadsheets continually review Dazzle exhibitions and the makers themselves have cult followings with their work appearing in major collections throught the World.
