Alongside the collections of these four jewellers will be Fifty Remarkable Rings by a selection of Fifty renowned international jewellers, each ring a celebration of just how multifaceted a ring can be – from a ring crafted from sugar crystals, to a faceted ebony Matterhorn ring, to a ring carved in the shape of an angular agile golden Panther!

A Fifty Pound Prize will be given to the creator of the Faceted Ring that gets the most public votes in My Fave Facet is…..and all voters will be entered into a Prize Draw to win a Fifty Pound KLJG Voucher!

 

Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery at Salts Mill – General Information

Since 1996 this leading contemporary jewellery gallery has been set within Salts Mill, home to the world’s largest collection of work by David Hockney. Open daily, it specializes solely in contemporary jewellery, silver and metalsmithing showcasing diverse collections by over seventy renowned designers and emerging talents from Britain and abroad. Starting out selling from a table top at The Corn Exchange in Leeds in 1994 whilst working as an NHS psychologist Kath Libbert’s now renowned gallery was described in The Times Luxx Magazine as ‘For clients who want jewels that push boundaries…the antidote to the high street’.

Much of the work on show pushes and blurs the boundaries between art, jewellery design and fashion resulting in jewellery that is, perhaps, best described as wearable art. Pieces are often created using a surprising range of materials and techniques. The gallery organizes a number of major exhibitions each year, some of which have been supported by funding from Arts Council England and the Crafts Council in recognition of the important role they play in showcasing the very best of British and international talent in Yorkshire and the UK. KLJG is also well known for its popular Annual Alternative Wedding Show, now in its 16th year.

Salts Mill is a magnificent Victorian textile mill built by Sir Titus Salt in the centre of Saltaire, the ‘model village’ he built to house his mill workers. Saltaire, which is surrounded by stunning scenery, was awarded World Heritage Status in 2001. Salts Mill was restored 30 years ago to show the world’s largest collection of works by the artist David Hockney – born in nearby Bradford. Along with Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, the Mill is also home to Salts Diner and a number of other designer shops and galleries.
