AG Announced as ‘Jewellery Designer of the Year’ Finalist 2013
It’s with a huge sense of delight that I can announce I’ve been shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Jewellery Designer of the Year’ category in the UK Jewellery Awards 2013.
To tell you the truth I’m bowled over by the news – 2013 has been something of a whirlwind, and already ranks as one of the busiest ever for the AG brand. I really feel like my desire to create is stronger that ever, and the inspiration for new designs appears to be coming thick and fast.
Perhaps it’s the birth of baby Arthur that has opened my mind to the vast untapped potential of my designs, or maybe it’s the fact I’ve been taking a long hard look at the AG brand as a whole. Whatever it might be, the speed and ferocity of evolution is a little unnerving at times, but I’m so grateful for the positive feedback that I’m sure I’m doing the right thing and designing from the heart (or somewhere a little deeper perhaps?)
Now more than ever I feel sure I’m designing uncompromising works of art that instigate that wonderful feeling which comes from marveling at something of true beauty.
Keep everything crossed for me AG friends and huge thanks for all your support so far.
Paying Homage to the Classics
You would think that when approaching twenty years in business, I must be showing signs of apathy or desire for a change. I can hand on heart tell you that this is simply not the case. In fact, totally the opposite! I am enjoying business more than ever and my creativity seems to be equally stimulated and inspired. I am aware of a shift though which is in itself creating a very exciting development with the AG collection. (more…)
She said YES! A Christmas Love Story
What a year 2012 has been. I’ve become a dad for the first time and felt more invigorated than ever designing some of my most exceptional pieces to date. All this innovating wouldn’t have been possible without the help and support of you lovely lot, so my final email of 2012 is rightly dedicated to you all.
As I was writing this newsletter and thinking about what an incredible year we’ve had here at AG Towers, I saw an email pop up in my inbox. The first line?
‘Hi Andrew, SHE SAID YES!’ (more…)
