Congratulations to Zuleika Penniman, who was awarded the Brian Wood Memorial Medal at the BA Jewellery Design Awards Evening 2014. Zulieka’s graduate collection “simultaneously conceals and reveals… a series of conversations between the object and the wearer, between the public and private, between the old and the new and between the here and now and thereafter” which engaged the interest of judge Margarita Wood.

Year 3 Tutor Lin Cheung was one of 10 finalists nominated to propose designs for the Tang Prize medals. Her designs – inspired by nanogold particles; interaction with students, scholars, teachers and professors of Law at LSE and sinologists at SOAS – proposed the use of Fairtrade Gold for the making of the medals. The Tang Prize is billed as the ‘Asian Nobel Prize’ and laureates will be awarded gold medals for revolutionary research and achievements in the four major fields of Sustainable Development, Sinology, Biopharmaceutical Science and The Rule of Law.
