Gilly Langton — Contemporary Jewellery
The Big Summer Jewellery Show
Showcasing Gilly’s new collection of sterling silver, gold and hand dyed elastic jewellery. This year Gilly will be introducing her first bespoke gold collection including earrings, necklaces and rings.
Plockton based international jewellery designer Gilly Langton presents her annual jewellery exhibition in her local village hall. The show has gone from strength to strength over the past eight years, since Gilly made the big move from Lancashire to Plockton after completing a residency here in 2005, she fell in love with the inspiring scenery of the west coast of Scotland, which is reflected in her silver and hand dyed jewellery.
2014 has been a great year for Gilly. So far, she has just completed a commission for WHR, creating the Women’s Henley Regatta Jewellery Collection, showcasing her collection at Dazzle jewellery show at the Dovecot, Edinburgh 1–25 August, the prestigious Goldsmith’s Fair, London 30 Sep–5 Oct and then she flies out to Chicago to show at SOFA Chicago alongside ten other contemporary Scottish designers in November.
Gilly’s work is also available at www.gillylangton.co.uk
