A GOBLET inspired by the weights on railway signals and handcrafted from ethically sourced silver will be among the beautiful pieces in an exhibition celebrating Scottish jewellery and silversmithing.

The design is by trainee silversmith Ruth Page (pictured left), who was commissioned to create the piece as part of her prize when she was awarded the Scottish Goldsmiths Trust (SGT) Outstanding Student Award in 2019.

It’s the first time that the award-winning design has been made from Fairmined silver – reflecting SGT’s ambition to see Scotland become a world leader in the use of ethically sourced materials.

Page said: “The use of Fairmined silver was important to me ... And now to have the piece selected for an exhibition that includes some superb pieces of gold and silversmithing going back to the 1880s is absolutely amazing.”

The Celebrating Our Craft exhibition will feature some 70 pieces throughout a 155-year history, taking place from August 26 to September 5 at Hamilton and Inches in Edinburgh.
