At Goldsmiths Hall award ceremony on the evening of 24 February 2020 Linda Connelly discovered that she had won the silver award. Linda says: “It is a tremendous honour and I was overwhelmed to find I had won silver. My winning entry is called ‘Magic Carpets flying over the City of my Dreams’, an appropriate title in the circumstances! The necklace is cloisonné enamel on silver, in a silver setting with four extra cloisonné panels, all engraved with lapis lazuli and Argentium silver beads strung on hand knotted silk. The reverse of the main pendant has silver stars pierced in the silver.” The necklace is on display at Goldsmiths Hall until Friday 28th February and then it will travel to the Birmingham Assay Office where it will be displayed from 11th -27th March.
