GemPen Diamond Screener Starting at £1,620.00

Many retailers are unaware of the laboratory grown diamonds (HTHP & CVD) that have been flooding into the market recently. With the GemPen you have a portable and accurate way of determining if diamonds are naturally mined or lab grown.

Put simply; if you sell or buy diamonds then we highly recommend the GemPen be at your side. It is, in our own humble opinion, the best option when testing loose melee or solitaire diamonds to giving clear and accurate results. Will test loose or set stones.

Christmas is Coming I have already received my first Christmas Catalogue in the post - is it that near? Hopefully, we will have an 'Indian Summer' first to make up for the lousy August weather. St. Paul's Church - Urgent Repairs Appeal There is a request for donations towards the repair of St Paul's church roof. It did have some repairs done when the 'cock' from the top of the church spire was blown off in a severe gale some years ago. It took ages for Canon Denis Caringly lo locate it in the church's roof space, but the weathervane and cock were repaired beautifully by experts. See story. (Visit St Paul's website to donate). Clean Air Zone Comment: When the Council kindly cut the grass in gardens belonging to the aged and disabled, why do they use petrol driven mowers not only do they create air pollution, but they are so noisy. Surely there are plenty of battery-operated mowers. There should be a glut of them on the second-hand market due to people paving over their front lawns to park their cars! Marie Haddleton Editor

Birmingham Assay Office Creates New e-Learning Platform Birmingham Assay Office has created an online hallmarking course, available on their e-Learning platform via their education and training division, AnchorCert Academy, to offer Trading Standards education on Hallmarking Enforcement. The importance of hallmarking has grown over the years, and high precious metal prices have created extremely lucrative opportunities for fraud and criminal activity in buying and selling jewellery and precious metal. The need for hallmarking, and in turn for the effective enforcement of hallmarking legislation, has risen exponentially. Consumer awareness and proper understanding of hallmarks is very low, and education is complicated by many misinterpretations of what a hallmark means. The long-established legislation cannot protect the consumer and the trade adequately without informed enforcement. Written in collaboration with experienced Trading Standards practitioners the online hallmarking course has been designed specifically for UK

Trade Talk from around the Jewellery Quarter and more.

Trading Standards departments to capture the key points to be noted. Taking 75 minutes to complete the course covers hallmarking legislation and explores recent case studies on high profile hallmarking offences to demonstrate the need for effective enforcement. Broken down into five lessons, the course can be completed as one session or broken down into shorter sessions of 15 minutes each. A certification awarding 1.25 hours of Continuous Professional Development points can be downloaded at the end of the course. Director of AnchorCert Academy Marion Wilson said, “Trading Standards bodies face many issues and problems across the country and work tirelessly to help protect the consumer in every possible way. Recent successful prosecutions have demonstrated the need for continuing enforcement of hallmarking. This course provides Trading Standards bodies with the information needed for proper and effective action and will provide a useful reference when planning their activities”.

WJN Celebrates 2nd Birthday with New Website The Women’s Jewellery Network celebrated its second-year anniversary in August with plans to mobilise its community and amplify messaging via its brand-new website. The industry trade organisation cements its place within the global jewellery industry with its new digital interface. The online platform provides a potted history of the female-led industry organisation, as well as profiles of each of the 40+ plus global Ambassadors and WJN Board members. The website also features a new blog which houses all WJN press releases and industry editorial comments. Commenting on the new digital platform, MD Victoria McKay said: “This is yet another milestone for the WJN and we’re so pleased to be launching the new website on our birthday weekend. Two years ago, the Women’s Jewellery Network was literally just an idea; now we’re a global movement. “Launching this platform allows us even more reach, as well as the ability to continue to carve out our space and place within the global jewellery sector on behalf of our community. It gives us a platform from which to launch our aspirations and ambitions for the organisation. Our new homepage states that our current mission is ‘building an army’… well, no one builds an army without a battle in mind; our website is an essential element of our artillery.” You can explore the new WJN website at www.womensjewellerynetwork.com and sign up to receive WJN news direct to your inbox.

B’ham Assay Office and De Beers Join Forces re Synthetic Diamond screening The Birmingham Assay Office and De Beers Group Industry Services, two institutions with a long history of supporting the jewellery industry by encouraging consumer confidence through integrity and transparency, have announced plans to join forces at IJL this September to help enhance the industry’s confidence in synthetic diamond screening processes. Birmingham Assay Office and De Beers Group Industry Services showcased live demonstrations of the award winning SYNTHdetect™ screening device at the IJL on the Birmingham Assay Office’s stand, De Beers Group Industry Services also participated in a seminar in the Knowledge Hub with David Brough and Jonathan Kendall. Undisclosed synthetic diamonds threaten to not only undermine trust in the diamond pipeline, they also threaten the integrity of the wider jewellery industry. Definitive identification and certification of stones from expert gemmologists using specialist testing equipment like the SYNTHdetect is therefore important to protect pipeline integrity. Synthetic diamonds are not in themselves problematic; they simply provide a different product offering for consumers, as they have a different value proposition. The key is ensuring that consumers can make clear and informed choices about what they buy. The major risk therefore lies with the potential for synthetic diamonds being

knowingly or unknowingly passed off as natural diamonds, which are inherently more valuable than their man-made counterparts. Because synthetic diamonds have the same optical and chemical properties as natural diamonds, it is important for trade participants, whether retailers or experienced gemmologists, to have access to effective equipment to detect lab-grown stones definitively. Jonathan Kendall, President of De Beers Group Industry Services said: “We released SYNTHdetect in 2018, and it is the first synthetic screening device to simultaneously test multiple stones in set jewellery and has the industry’s lowest referral rate (around 0.05%). It is designed to quickly and efficiently test the authenticity of dia-

monds mounted in jewellery, although the device can also be used to test loose stones of various sizes. Last September, the device won the 2018 Industry Innovation of the Year for Diamond Testing Technology at the JNA Awards.” Sarah North, Sales Director at Birmingham Assay Office said: “Undisclosed synthetic diamonds can compromise the reputation of a business. We want to help our customers protect their business from the risks relating to undisclosed synthetic stones, and we have invested in the best technology to be able to do this. We are very much looking forward to joining De Beers Group Industry Services at IJL to drive this important topic and show how the jewellery industry can safeguard itself from undisclosed synthetic stones.”

The show aims to capture material fragments and visual elements as a timeline or trail. This focuses on a slow, developmental process of materialbased and practice-led enquiry that has taken place over the recent years and across several locations. The journeys between his studio in Edinburgh, research time as a visiting artist in Bristol and his academic work in Sheffield, Edinburgh and now Birmingham have all helped shape the praxis that this exhibition seeks to unpack and examine.

Born in 1967, two years before the Apollo 11 moon landing, Bottomley continues to be influenced by the space age as reflected and filtered through in literature, art, film, and TV. Ancient and Classical jewellery, Egyptian Art and the Renaissance have also been significant, alongside pulp and science fiction, and Japanese and Scandinavian design influences. This exhibition features current test pieces and experimental ‘workin progress’ with new materials in his vocabulary. Since 2016 and the ‘Adorned Afterlife’ research project he has been experimenting with Egyptian faience, a low-fire mixture of ceramic materials containing clay, sand, colorants, frits, and soluble salt traces. ‘A pair of wings, a different respiratory system, which enabled us to travel through space, would in no way help us, for if we visited Mars or Venus while keeping the same senses, they would clothe everything we could see in the same aspect as the things of the Earth.

St Paul's Club Still Going Strong but no Longer in St Pauls Square 'By way of introduction my name is Dan Norman and I am the President of St Paul's Club. One of my members brought to my attention an edition of the Hockley Flyer from March this year, that I have some splendid news on. It was with greatest regret that St Paul's Club is no longer on St Paul's Square, but I can assure you we are still very much operational and growing in Members. We have relocated to Edgbaston Hall, a Club within a Club if you will, at Edgbaston Golf Club.

ronment without major alteration and subsequent disruption to the existing facilities and the comfort of our patrons. It was with heavy heart and fond memories that we left the Square, however the relocation to Edgbaston has its own benefits. We are growing into our new surroundings and able to focus on the community that the Club is renowned for. We were very happy to facilitate a sale to a long-term Birmingham based firm of solicitors, that I believe will (pending planning) be able to use the property as a stunning City Centre office. This will bring additional commercial activity to the thriving area of the Jewellery Quarter and we are very pleased that the building is evolving in this manner. While bittersweet, the Jewellery Quarter will be missed as we set about our future in Edgbaston'. Contact for St Paul's Club is 0121 674 4260 or enquiries@stpaulsclub.co.uk

Alex has a music career spanning more than 40 years, releasing ten studio albums, six compilation albums and two live albums and has sold millions of records across the world. His back catalogue from the golden age of soul in the 1980’s includes hits such as ‘Fake’, ‘Criticize’, ‘If You Were Here Tonight’, ‘Saturday Love’, ‘Never Knew Love Like This’, ‘Sunshine’, ‘Secret Lovers’ and many more. The Jam House show will include all of these legendary hits, from his Platinum-selling album ‘Hearsay’ that shot Alex to fame both sides of the Atlantic thirty years ago and will also include new songs from his latest album ‘Resurrected’, recently recorded in the UK. This veteran and much-loved soul singer, who turned 65 last year, still plays to packed houses and is currently on a short tour of the UK clearly still enjoys entertaining people and lost none of his charm and stage presence.

WM Police Museum at Steelhouse Lane Lock-up

Just outside the Jewellery Quarter, The Hockley Flyer magazine is working with West Midlands Police who are currently working on a National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) application to secure the funds needed to convert the Steelhouse Lane Lock-up into the new permanent home of the West Midlands Police Museum. Above is just one of the graphics put together by our museum consultants Campbell & Co and a drawing by our architects Latham Architects showing the potential future layout and use of the building. “Our plan is to be open several days a week for walk-in customers, school groups, private group bookings, young people’s groups and corporate events, to have more of our heritage on display than ever before and make it more accessible than has ever been possible before. The NLHF funding would allow us to achieve this vision and produce a fantastic attraction for Birmingham and the West Midlands to be proud of, that showcases policing heritage from around the West Midlands and delivers vital policing

messages to young people to support a goal of having fewer victims of crime and fewer offenders”.

It will be wonderful to see the outline marked of the Chapel which was demolished and, of course, the restoration of the railings around the Cemeteries which were removed to be melted down as part of the WW2 War effort but were later dumped into the North sea when the material was found to be unsuitable! Also, the cleaning up of the pathways, drainage, and re-fixing of the safety rails.

J W Evans & Co in Albion Street (founded in the 1980s and restored into a Silver Museum by English Heritage) which was featured in the Heritage/War section of the August 2019 Hockley Flyer, was followed up by the 'Friends' and Colin Giles took this photograph of the grave of the founder Jenkin William Evans who died in 1928. It is hoped that it will be possible to 'tidy up' the grave to make it more attractive to visitors. Lock-up Badge September 2019

The picnic boxes have been created by the wonderful team at The Hive JQ and include a savoury and sweet option. All donations are to help raise funds for the repair of our roof. There are limited number of boxes so please make a donation as soon as you can, in order to secure one. You will be able to collect this at the church on the day.

St Paul's Summer fete 15th Sept

Expect food trucks, drinks, live music, classic cars, fitness, and stalls representing the creators and creatives from the Jewellery Quarter and beyond. You will also get a chance to a church tour to see what the church is like and who’s walked through its doors over the years.

St Paul’s Church Fund Appeal

St Paul’s church is a Grade I listed building which has stood for nearly 240 years in the only remaining Georgian Square in Birmingham. We would like to keep our doors open so that people can experience a bit of Birmingham’s history and also put on events for the community to enjoy. We can’t do this without YOUR support. Please head to our ‘just giving page’ to find out more, or if you’d like to give an extra donation. The essential work needed is as follows: • The guttering of the church building is over 50 years old and is in dire need of repair. • The roof also needs extensive attention to prevent further damage

mittee was highly impressed by the renovation of the former George & Dragon [Grade II] and by the commitment and vision of everyone involved in bringing a once decaying 19th century building back to life. Jewellery Quarter Development Trust Chairman, Cllr Phil Davis, and Gurbinder Sandhu, Director of Kartar Consulting, who were Quantity Surveyors and Project Managers for the renovation, jointly unveiled the Award.

The Museum was a fascinating Aladdin’s Cave of industrial heritage exhibits crammed into a very unsuitable building for such a function - lots of tiny rooms on different levels which made it all the more exciting to explore! Immediately inside the entrance you were presented with a rather grotty ‘cafe’ area along the righthand side and then, to the left, 6235 LMS Coronation Class 4-6-2 loco ‘City of Birmingham7 which used to shuffle electronically along backwards and

forwards a yard or so on the hour: sounds naff but was very impressive as a child - particularly the scale of the engine. As you moved along the walkway past the loco and cafe you had an Otis lift gear display in front of you - when you pressed a button the machinery whirred into action and the many hours of laughter I had as a child at the phrase ‘governor balls’ you wouldn’t begin to imagine! To the left of that I seem to recall an old open-sided Birmingham City Council dustbin lorry and an old steam engine named ‘Secundus’; that I think had blown it’s boiler working in a quarry or some such, in Dorset. the ‘Birmingham’ connection being it was built by Bellis & Seekings in 1874. To the end of the room and through a small doorway and you were into a more labyrinthine part of the museum with vintage cars, aircraft parts, the last tram to run in Birmingham along with sound (when a button was pressed, of course) and - one of my personal favourites - ten to 15 radios dating back some 100 years or so with a little control panel. A tune would be playing and by pressing a series of buttons, the tune would switch to playing through the corresponding radio so you could hear the differences in sound quality over the years ... an excellent piece of kit. I must have spent a day or two every holiday mooching around inside the Museum and knew every exhibit inside out (the sands of time.

March and October: A Traction Engine Rally in Newhall Street each May; a stationary Engine Rally in September and other special events took place from time to time.

Note: The day that the Birmingham Loco was removed from the Museum onto a low loader in Newhall Street saw Canon Denis Claringbull, and Marie Haddleton watching, in tears.

Hands Off Our Science Museum! Source: Printed in Hockley Flyer No 145 1997 By Marie Haddleton

‘I reckon there are not many people in the City of Birmingham who have not visited the Science Museum and then taken their children and their grandchildren there over the years. The Science Museum is an important asset to the City of Birmingham, not only does it give visitors a glimpse of the wonderful history of the City’s industrial heritage, but also to enjoy a ‘cheap’ day out for the family. Making cuts is one of the reasons given, so maybe a small entrance fee could be charged, after all no-one really expects anything for nothing these days and it would help to pay overheads, wages, etc. The new Chairman of The Jewellery Quarter Association, Canon Denis Claringbull, Vicar of St Paul’s Church, has written a letter in support of the campaign to keep the Science Museum open at least until more news is available regarding the Digbeth project. We have already ‘lost’ the Traction Engine Rally which attracted supporters and visitors from all over the country and the Science Museum acts as a ‘stepping-stone’ from the City Centre, the Canals, and The Jewellery Quarter itself. Birmingham just would not be the same without it!’

Birmingham Science Museum Celebrated in Art Source: CityLiving - May 24-June 6 2007

‘A film chronicling the life and times of Birmingham’s old Science Museum was premiered at the popular museum’s former home on Newhall Street. The museum has been demolished to make way for a mixed use scheme, Newhall Square, comprising apartments, shops, cafes, bars, offices and galleries. Property developer RO St Bernards has appointed five artists to produce works which will ensure the museum’s legacy lives on in words, pictures, film and on-line. More than 100 people, drawn from Birmingham’s business and arts communities, attended the event. A booklet, which documents some of

Birmingham’s location away from ports and navigable rivers was such that its success as a manufacturing centre depended upon a good transport system. so the building of the Birmingham canal system brought in coal, pig iron and articles for the manuacture of brass and steel and also making possible for Birmingham manufacturers to transport their goods to the ports of London, Liverpool, Bristol and Hull. Birmingham’s canal network aided the development of the town of Birmingham., The canal trade continued for nearly 200 years. The Birmingham canal network cuts through the south of the Jewellery Quarter. The Birmingham and Fazeley Canal was completed in this area in 1789. A canal arm was constructed by Caroline Colmore in 1809 and this became known as Miss Colmore’s Canal, although was later named Whitmore’s Arm. The canal arm has since been filled in although the remains of the entrance to it are still visible from the canal path. Also along this length of canal are the remains of brackets which held early canalside lighting. Newhall Street crosses the canal and beneath the bridge is lock 9 of the Farmers Bridge flight. Lock 10 is located directly beneath Brind-

Seriously though, it went crashing straight through the roof space and ceiling of the church and is now lying broken into three pieces.’ (Hockley Flyer No 118 1995) ‘The beloved Cock and Weather Vane which crashed Church showing scaffolding to replace Weather to earth on Good Friday 1994 Cock & Vane. was sorely missed and we new coat of gold leaf.

The canal is no longer used for industrial purposes and is now used for leisure) • The Birmingham & Fazeley Canal was completed in 1789 • The canal was nick-named ‘The Bottom Road’ At common lock 10, on the lower lock tail, an inscription can be found in the stonework. It reads: “Pax Missa per Orbem, Pax Quaeritur Bello”, which translates as “Peace Is Sent throughout the World, Peace Is Sought through War NB: A Special Event to commemorate the 250th Anniversary of the opening of the Canal will be held on 3rd November 2019.

WW1 & WW2 The Canals During both World Wars, navigation for aircraft was in its infancy and bombers, knowing that canals were used for transportation and if they followed these ribbons of light, they would lead them to major manufacturers of war components etc. Of course, all direction signs on the towpaths were removed and lamps were either turned off completely or screened as a precaution of a land

invasion, but nevertheless the ribbon of water showed up even on a dull night to guide bombers to their target. By this time, The editor of this magazine Marie Haddleton had moved out of Hockley to Great Barr and consequently were very near to the canal which made one very uneasy. The canal leading to Perry Barr where Kynochs, the munitions factory, was situated. The rumour was that if it got bombed the whole of Birmingham would go up with one almighty BANG!

Book on-line We know how important it is to recruit new or replacement staff quickly. Book your advert online yourself quickly and easily. Once payment has been approved the advert will be approved usually within hours. We will take the details from the advert and produce your advert for the next available printed version, or you can also supply your own artwork. Book off-line If you wish to place your advert without using our online service your advert will only appear in the printed version of the magazine. If you wish us to place the advert on-line as well an additional charge of £10 will apply for the extra work involved and extra details we require from you.
