Elements | Four Days Celebrating Precious Metals | Timetable of Events

For the first time this September the Incorporation of Goldsmiths and Lyon & Turnbull will host Elements, a four day festival celebrating the art of precious metals. Elements will bring together over forty contemporary jewellers and silversmiths from across the UK and an exclusive exhibition of some of Scotland’s greatest collections of contemporary silver.

Elements will be held in our main Edinburgh saleroom, from the 10 – 13 September 2015. Two of Scotland’s well-known, but rarely seen in public, collections of contemporary silver; the Silver of the Stars Collection and ‘The Millennium Collection for Bute House’ will be on show. Forty of the U.K.’s most talented contemporary silversmiths and jewellers will be making and displaying their work, which will be available for sale over the four days.

The festival will comprise an exhibition, a variety of events and a selling fair showcasing some of the UK’s most exquisite work in silver and jewellery. The Incorporation and Lyon & Turnbull have a heritage of producing, exhibiting and selling work at the highest level - combining our strengths to produce Elements, a powerhouse of talent for all generations.

Elements will take place in our main Edinburgh location, and is a key focus in Edinburgh’s Silver September season – a month of events celebrating the beauty of precious metals in Scotland’s capital.
