Jewellery and Watch, 5 - 9 February 2017, NEC Birmingham - Day 2

February 07, 2017 Carol Lane

In the hope of catching a lull in the show I returned for my second trip to Jewellery and Watch 2017 held at the NEC, Birmingham.  No such luck!  The original plan-to whistle stop around the designer section and see who is using opal-quickly fell to pieces.

Not only was the Monday afternoon far busier with visitor numbers than I would have expected, but the number of exhibitors with fascinating insights and stories to tell is high this year.

One lady who caught our attention is Katarina Burghard of Kat B London, who is already using Australian opals in her collections and presents with a simple, yet elegant boutique:

A favourite piece of ours is Katarina's 'Dive Into The Night' Ring which demonstrates how well freeform cut opals can be worked into designs. :


That's it for today as it's nearly time to do it all again-hope to see you there and hey, who needs plans anyway?

More updates to come.
