Once again we were blown away by the quality of work of the graduates on the BA Jewellery and Related Products course at the School of Jewellery. Congratulations to everyone on the course for your beautiful bodies of work, we're sure you'll all go on to do great things!

However, there had to be a winner, and we're delighted to announce the winners of this year's Sara Preisler Award for Practical Realisation of Concept are Chloe Solomon and Rebecca Blakeway!

Rebecca uses etching and enamel techniques to shine a light on the beauty of details often unappreciated within our busy, modern-day lifestyles; be they architectural or on our own bodies. Using a muted pallette in contrast with bright silver, she engages both sight and touch in her gorgeous body of work.

In her 'Skin' collection Chloe evokes the texture and surface of our skin using her unique wax hybrid material. Every piece has a unique finish, featuring delicate textures and colours housed inside linear forms to evoke the connection between all of us.

A huge congratulations to both of our winners, keep an eye out for their work in the gallery soon!

We are pleased to announce the winners of the Sara Preisler Award for Practical Realisation of Concept. This is the second year that Sara has offered this coveted award to the BA students at Birmingham City University's School of Jewellery, and is awarded to the student or students who best express their chosen philosophy or human experience through their collection of degree work.

This year's winners are Francesca Onumah and Lois Freestone, so congratulations to them both!

Francesca Onumah's ornamental objects have been created using traditional silversmithing skills. Their sensitive, textured landscapes act as abstract miniature homes for the memories associated with our environment.

Lois Freestone's series of rings are wearable architecture, containing quartz crystal. These strong, geometric forms contain an imposing sense of place and purpose, despite their small size.

We look forward to having the work of both winners in the gallery over the next few months!
