A new competition designed to incentivise and showcase the UK’s next generation of jewellery designers and makers has opened for entries.

Launched by Monica Vinader - the demi fine jewellery brand famed for its use of sustainable materials – the competition offers entrants the chance to win £5,000 and to design a six-piece collection for exclusive sale on the Monica Vinader website.

Submissions to the "New From Old" themed-competition must include a three-piece collection of “wearable creativity", made using recycled or found materials.
