The Alternative Wedding Show focuses on reworked heirlooms

8 March 2011 by Kate Donovan

The Alternative Wedding Show has a Rock Revival focus this year, addressing the trend for working heirlooms into contemporary designs.

Yorkshire’s annual selling exhibition of contemporary bridal jewellery is taking place from February 6 to May 3, 2011, at the Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery in Salts Mills, Bradford.

Now in its 10th year, The Alternative Wedding Show features jewellery by designers including Malcolm Morris, who has made pieces for the Duchess of Gloucester, Joan Collins and Dawn French, and work by designers David McCaul, Natalie Jane Harris and Josef Koppmann.

The show incorporates every kind of bridal jewellery and this year, a personalised design service will be a prevalent feature. The show is addressing the current trend for working heirloom jewels into contemporary designs by including jewellers who will work to commission and create bespoke pieces for the Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery’s clients.

Kath Libbert said: “We bring together the skills and design talent of a select group of very prestigious jewellers who are happy to breathe new life into pieces that have perhaps been languishing, just waiting to be transformed into something fabulous. We offer an opportunity to work with these designers to create beautiful, one off bespoke pieces of jewellery.”
