Very nice to see a lot of lovely people and had good experiences with Flux Studioes at Old Spitalfield Market for 6 days.
I reunited Becky (Rebecca Boatfield) who had One Day Designer Sale event together at Craft Central in February. She makes quarky jewellery using her graphic design skills and interesting materials together. She reported all her London Jewellery Week quest on her blog
I met a French jewellery designer, Dorine Decayeux. She weaves colouful nylon threads to make her light unique jewellery. I should have asked her jewellery photo. her website link is www.vlum.fr
