Ocean Neckpiece selected for Goldsmiths Fair 40 at 40 Exhibition

Rachel Garrahan, Jewellery and Watch Director at British Vogue, chooses Ute Decker Neckpiece

rachel garrahan, jewellery and watch director at british vogue, on selecting only 40 pieces from the wealth of talent on offer at the goldsmiths’ fair 2022 to represent the “now” – our life and times, and the matters that captivate and concern us, writes


 “as this summer’s own blistering heat demonstrated, the urgency of combatting the climate crisis has never been greater. ute decker was a pioneer in this respect, putting ethical sourcing at the top of her list of values long before it was fashionable to do so. it’s heartening now to see it becoming accepted practice among an ever wider group of makers, who take on this complex and thorny issue with the research and commitment it deserves.”
