Local Market Harborough jewellery maker receives award!




Anna Calvert JewelleryLocal contemporary jeweller Anna Calvert has recently set up her own award winning business. Anna studied at Loughborough University and gained her degree in 2006 and has since been working on her jewellery part time.

In 2009 upon gaining a place at Design Space a business incubation scheme for jewellers in the Jewellery Quarter Birmingham Anna took the bold step of leaving her job at Northampton Council to pursue her career in jewellery.  From here her business went from strength to strength and recently she took part in her first trade fair. Anna Calvert Jewellery was exhibiting at the British Craft Trade Fair 3rd – 5th April and was awarded the Best Newcomers Award sponsored by Craft & Design Magazine.  Anna said “it was a fantastic recognition from the industry, to win this award.  I am really proud of what I have achieved so far. I am just so over whelmed by the positive response I have had to my work”.

Anna’s jewellery is made from silver using traditional techniques but she incorporates a modern twist by introducing soft leather into her pieces.  It was this that caught the judges eye along with the craftsmanship of the work and her overall presentation. Anna is now busy working from her workshop in Harborough, on orders received at the show and is looking forward to her next local show Makers Mart on the 23rd April at the LCB Depot in Leicester.
