I recently had the opportunity to go to Liberty’s department store in London to meet the buyers at the recent Best of British open call. Two thousand designers had signed up for the event. This was a great experience to show a accessories buyer jewellery that I had designed and made, it was also good to hear their opinions. When I arrived I was directed to the upper level of the building where I waited for a relatively short length of time to see one of the member’s of the buying team. While I waited I caught up with several jewellery designers who I have met through various trade fairs that I have attended and visited. There was a friendly atmosphere and the event was well organised. Overall it was an exciting experience.
