Vikki Freeman, designer and daughter of local jewellery designer Catherine Best, has been awarded Gold in the prestigious Goldsmiths’ Craft & Design Council Awards.
This award identifies and rewards excellent design that can be successfully manufactured using production techniques. Vikki’s design included a set of jewellery which was drawn using CAD (Computer Aided Design) and then 3D printed and cast in a variety of precious metals. The innovative idea behind the design allows for it to be double-sided and completely customisable. While one side could be set with diamonds, the other could be set with a variety of mixed colour stones, allowing for two different looks in one design.
Having been awarded multiple accolades since joining Catherine Best as a designer, Vikki is fast following in her mother’s footsteps. The two-generation family business is going strength to strength and now has premises located in Guernsey, Jersey and Mayfair.
