The William Dudley Trust is pleased to showcase below some of the work by this year's recipients of awards made to students at the Birmingham School of Jewellery. A total of twelve students received awards from the Trust in 2019. Having gone through a rigourous selection process these students exhibited the necessary attributes and talent worthy of support from the Trust, and are carrying on the tradition of world-class jewellery making in Birmingham.
Rosie Mell was awarded the Trust's Artist in Residence bursary in January 2020. Rosie graduated with a First Class BA in Jewellery Design from the School of Jewellery in 2019. Rosie is developing her own jewellery brand focused on contemporary designs in both metal and leather. She also hopes to be a teacher in the future, helping students to learn and find inspiration. The position as an Artist in Residence at the School of Jewellery, dedicating a minimum of one day a week assisting students in their taught sessions and contributing to tutorials, is a step in that direction.
