Elements features 50 of the UK’s most talented jewellers and silversmiths, providing a unique opportunity for Edinburgh residents to meet makers, learn the stories behind their work, and see the immense skill that goes into each finished piece.

Each day of the Fair will feature a number of demonstrations highlighting different skills used to produce the exquisitely made work you will find at Elements.

The final stage of the making process is often to have jewellery or silver hallmarked at one of the UK’s four independent Assay Offices. The Edinburgh Assay Office Master Marker, Charles Munro, will be at Elements to demonstrate the art of handmarking and discuss the purpose and value of hallmarking.

Register to attend the Elements Cocktail Evening to see Charles at work.
