The Guild of Jewellery Designers is a collaboration of British jewellery designers and artisans ranging from part time enthusiasts to dedicated full time professionals offering support and networking.
We are a nationwide guild for jewellers and silversmiths offering practical help and advice to our members as well as forging links within the industry, enabling us to offer the best opportunities to GoJD members.
We also provide a platform for artisans, to be able to share their expertise and knowledge of jewellery design with fellow members and at the same time enhance their professional profiles and improve the SEO on their own personal websites with backlinks.
The Guild is open to all levels of skill – we’re not here to judge your work and see ourselves as a positive, nuturing organisation. If you are a UK jeweller or silversmith and feel that you would like the support of other professionals in your industry, then join us today, for free.
As an organisation we want to create as many opportunities as possible for you to share, enjoy and learn about all aspects of making jewellery. Our aim is also to help promote UK jewellery designers and to offer our members substantial discounts for products and services ranging from tools and courses to insurance and website building from participating supplier partners.The main GoJD website
is the central hub of the guild where you can share your jewellery making techniques, hints and tips in the form of article tutorials or videos.
