The jewellery making is the same as it has been for hundreds of years but the way to sell is so different! I am getting to grips with facebook, twitter instagram and pintrest to name a few!. But it is certainly different from doing my first exhibition with the Designer Jewellers Group at the Barbican and selling my first piece. That was a wonderful moment.
So much has happened in 10 years. From designing and making many new ranges to changing workshops 5 times! (I’m staying put now!!)
I have exhibited at major exhibitions from London Fashion Week to New York International Gift Fair, I have managed to sail around the world selling my work on cruise ships as well, so things have truly been International. I have also made work for films and designed for high street brands from Primark to Next. I produced exclusive ranges for Jersey Pearl, (www.jerseypearl.com/pearl-jewellery-collections/kimberley-selwood.html) Chamilia and Not on the high street. (www.notonthehighstreet.com/kimberleyselwood)
Also I had more than my 15 minutes of fame, when I appeared on QVC monthly selling my collection of jewellery designed exclusively for them!
