Welcome

to the latest issue of The Hockley Flyer

t @hockleyflyer f www.facebook.com/thehockleyflyer

In this issue is a story about an online survey, please complete if you have anything to do with the manufacture of Jewellery and other associated trades. So far, the people doing the survey have let us know they had a good early response to the survey, but it would be great to get more and verify the data further and perhaps understand the jewellery manufacturing inter cluster differences more clearly.

Deadline 25th of month preceding cover date.

It is very much in line with the findings of the 2016 survey in terms of skills shortages across the board and especially in the individual skilled hand and bench areas.

Those skill shortages must be even worse now as Covid has made many people stop and think about their lives, welfare, and ambitions and some have gone a step further with a career change or set up their own business. In America it is estimated some 30 million people have left good employment following the pandemic to follow their dreams.

Jewellery and creative industries feedback needed to shape a Jewellery Quarter Incubator

The Jewellery Quarter Development Trust (JQDT) has commissioned research and an options appraisal for a potential new Jewellery Quarter Incubator to support growth of the jewellery and other creative industries in the area. Local businesses are being surveyed so the Incubator can best address their needs. The Jewellery Quarter has a 250+ year old industrial cluster; it is a working jewellery quarter -there are estimated to be over 600 firms and over 4,000 employees working in the jewellery, precious metals, and related industries. Trades depend on each other for specialist skills, labour, materials, and support. The jewellery industry is complemented by a wide range of other creative businesses, ranging from craftspeople and fashion designers to photographers and architects. Skills development, business support and affordable workspaces are often cited as essential ingredients for the growth of all the Jewellery Quarter’s creative industries. The survey is being funded by the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP)

and conducted by the Institute for Design, Economic Acceleration & Sustainability (IDEAS) at Birmingham City University, on behalf of the JQDT and the Jewellery Quarter Cultural Action Zone*. The survey can be completed online and takes 15-20 minutes to complete. It closes on 31st August so there are just 2 weeks to respond: https://freeonlinesurveys.com/s/ nMEsn2je?#/0 Speaking about the importance of the survey, Matthew Bott, Jewellery Quarter Development Trust Board Director, and co-chair of the Jewellery Quarter Neighbourhood Plan said: “Given the challenges facing the whole economy and specific local issues, this survey will establish what more can be done to support creative businesses right across the Jewellery Quarter. We want to find out how best an Incubator and Hub can be put in place to nurture and grow existing new companies. For entrepreneurs we see the opportunity for a range of business support services including access to physical and virtual space, coaching and skills development, common services provision, networking connections and promotion. It’s really important that people give us the benefit of their in-depth experience.” Beverley Nielsen, Associate Pro f e s s o r a t t h e I n s t i t u t e f o r Design, Economic Acceleration & Sustainability (IDEAS) at BCU added: “This survey will add to the information we collected in 2016. For some time, there’s been a concern about the jewellery industry cluster being in decline. Certain parts are thriving, new technologies are being harnessed with great results and some

wonderful new talent is being established. However, there’s a recognition that hand, craft, and bench skills are diminishing arts as people retire. Some of these remain essential to the integrity of the jewellery industry cluster including polishing, plating, enamelling, stone setting, aspects of engraving, finishing, antiquing and even repairing. This survey aims to highlight the particular features of the Jewellery Quarter industry cluster and clarify some of its many interconnections. These businesses are buying and selling off each other regularly and become interdependent whilst also being, in some cases, competitors. We will look to establish key strengths and weaknesses, skills gaps, and look at how talent might be retained and developed with an additional focus on the practical skills required into the future. We will also be able to make comparisons with past performance here and luxury clusters elsewhere, as well as highlight some of the trends facing the industry. So far, we have spoken with almost 30 businesses and we’re really keen to reach as many as possible. The broader creative industries in the Jewellery Quarter complement and enhance the traditional offer so it is important that non-jewellery creative businesses participate in the survey as together there is huge potential for the future.” Commenting on the importance of the survey and the need to look after the jewellery industry cluster, Greg Fattorini, Managing Director of Jeweller y Quarter’s Thomas Fattorini's Ltd, comments: “The Jewellery Quarter industry cluster is world class. It is an invisible, complex, interdependent network of interconnected companies and creative individuals; the retail trade in the Jewellery Quarter being just the tip of the iceberg. It is a precious asset to Birmingham, the West Midlands and the nation that should be nurtured and promoted.”

British Academy of Jewellery and Theo Fennell reveal winners of collaborative Live Project

The British Academy of Jewellery is delighted to announce the winners of its Circle of Life Live Project with Theo Fennell.

marks have been applied already and there are still almost six months left to add this special commemorative Mark, adding value to items made in this historic year. The historic, unmistakably royal Mark has been widely applied and is still in demand. It can be used as part of the hallmark on any precious metal. Doug Henry, Assay Master for Birmingham said: “Demand has been steadily growing since the launch last November and the key June celebrations have increased the awareness and popularity of the

mark. We have seen some spectacular high-ticket items, specially commissioned for the Jubilee, but the mark adds value to the simplest item, and we have applied it to lockets, picture frames and wedding rings amongst many other anniversary and commemorative pieces. The platinum jubilee is a unique event in British history and the commemorative hallmark is a lovely reminder of the special occasion to enhance the sentimental value of an individual item of jewellery.” Noel Hunter, BHC Chair commented “This is really good news as promotion of the Jubilee Mark brings the hallmark to the public’s notice. The objective of the HALO initiative launched by the BHC in 2021 is to encourage jewellers to view every hallmark as a selling point and ensure the customer is aware of its meaning and importance. After almost 700 years of statutory hallmarking in the UK it is easy for the industry to take it for granted but in a global market and a world where we hear of scams, fraud, and forgeries on a daily basis it is more vital than ever. The explosion of brands and the mix of precious and base metal jewellery on many websites can be very confusing. The level playing field which hallmarking should create will continue to be dangerously eroded twitter @hockleyflyer

Due to the high quality of the work, Theo Fennell chose a total of eight students to have the honour of seeing their pieces shown at Theo Fennell’s premises in Chelsea, where they can be sold, if the designers so wish. Along with the winner and runners up, students Edward Haire, Anara Pearce, Inti Yeung, Mollie Horrox, and Duke Birt were also chosen for the showcase. The pieces made by our students as part of the Circle of Life Live Project were on display as part of our Final Show 2022 exhibition which took place from July 29 to 30 at The Koppel Project on 125 New Bond Street, London. “It’s been wonderful to see the creativity and skill of the British Academy of Jewellery’s students reflected in these beautiful, high-quality pieces. Everybody interpreted the brief in different and imaginative ways which resulted in a fabulous variety of unique artistic visions. Choosing unless legitimate precious metal jewellery offers online are clearly differentiated by reference to the hallmark. Trust, confidence, and integrity are clearly important to the British public at present and the hallmark delivers all of these.” In 2021 the British Hallmarking Council made available a digital Dealer’s Notice (Dealer Notice B and brief explanatory film which can be downloaded here for use on websites and social media. The National Association of Jewellers is strongly supporting the new Hallmarking Awareness and Learning Online (HALO) initiative which has already prompted a fresh approach to explaining the hallmark by some jewellers. Coupled with the Assay Assured scheme operated by Edinburgh Assay Office a drive to improve consumer understanding of the hallmark and therefore reassert its importance and added value has begun. In order to maintain the momentum, the application date for entries for the HALO Award has been extended until 16th September and jewellers are encouraged to enter. The Award will be presented at the industry’s Benevolent Society Ball in December.

congratulate its three winners for their outstanding work.” “Working to a real industry brief set by such a renowned UK brand has been a marvellous learning opportunity for our students, giving them hands-on experience of what it’s like to create in a professional context” added Sally Collins, Technical Diploma Coordinator at the British Academy of Jewellery. Circle of Life is the latest entry in the British Academy of Jewellery’s exciting Live Project series, which sees our students work on real-life industry briefs set by some of the country’s most prestigious jewellery brands.

The exhibition was also open to the public from July 29 to 30, providing an opportunity to get inspired and see the high level of work students at BAJ produce. “At BAJ we believe in celebrating our students’ achievements at every level of their education,” said BAJ Principal Sharjeel Nawaz. “Our students excelled at this opportunity to showcase their work to top professionals in the jewellery sector.

our learners this year and am incredibly proud to showcase the talent that the dedicated BAJ tutors and support teams have helped to nurture over the last year,” said BAJ Head of Academy Kate Rieppel. “It is a great privilege to observe up-and-coming craftspeople and designers and be able to usher them into the jewellery industry. It is also a delight to welcome more and more industry professionals each year to support our learners on their journeys. I can’t wait to see what next year brings!” “It feels amazing,” said Zak Bouaguel on winning an award. “I really didn’t expect it. I was right up at the front, so when I heard “I don’t know how I’m going to pronounce this name” I got that little flash in my head thinking wow, it really could be me, and then I heard my name, and it was amazing!” BAJ also held a Final Show 2022 exhibition at its Birmingham campus, located in the Birmingham Assay Office in the city’s Jewellery Quarter, on August 2. The event also featured several awards which gave students an opportunity to forge links with the city’s vibrant jewellery industry. The exhibition was open to the public 3rd to the 9th of August.

Estilo Interiors has turned in a record year, signing £27.6m’s worth of business. The figure is more than double the previous year-end of £12.7m - when the Jewellery Quarter-based commercial interior design, fit-out and refurbishment company’s business was hit by the pandemic – and a third up on 2019, when Estilo Interiors serviced £20.3m of contracts. Andrew Moore, managing director of Estilo Interiors, said the change in working practices since Covid is driving growth. He said: “Office occupiers are on the move, seeking better quality space and high-end interiors to match. Employers are keen to make the office a real destination. Facilities such as dog pens/pet’s corners are among the new features employers are asking us to build in, to improve the working experience. “We’re also finding that occupiers and landlords are keen to achieve external accreditation for their spaces. The cost of achieving standards such as BREEAM, WiredScore, Smart Spaces and SKA* has often proved off-putting in the past. But post-pandemic, health, wellbeing, and digital connectivity have all moved to the top of the agenda and employers are keen to be seen delivering these and we are able to provide solutions.” Among the fit-out projects Estilo Interiors has completed is the £1.6m overhaul of property manager MAPP’s offices in London and Birmingham. Law firm Clarke Willmott turned to the company to complete the £1.5m facelifts at its Birmingham and Taunton offices, while Kite Packing’s new office in Coventry also benefited from a £1.4m Estilo Interiors makeover. Manufacturer Hawker Siddeley Switchgear’s £2.9m works were also delivered by the company. In addition to working for occupiers, Estilo Interiors has worked with landlords to deliver building Read online: www.thehockleyflyer.info

refurbishments. Projects include the £2.5m makeover of Interchange, in Birmingham’s Edmund Street, and a £2.3m spend at Blake House, Birmingham. Cat A fit-outs have been completed or are underway at Lombard House, Great Charles S t re e t ; 5 4 H a g l e y R o a d a n d Newater House, Newhall Street, all in Birmingham. The £4.2m refurbishment of 10 Victoria Street, Bristol, was completed during the firm’s record year. Andrew Moore said: “Landlords too have raised the bar, with Cat A+ fit-outs now becoming more commonplace. These fully fitted ‘plug and play’ solutions help attract tenants and gets them in to a building more quickly. “We are also advising landlords on net zero strategies, as they seek to make their buildings greener.” Although Birmingham-based, an increasing amount of Estilo Interiors’ work is outside the Midlands. Andrew Moore said: “We’ve delivered projects in London, Exeter, Bristol, and Cardiff in the last year. Widening our geographical net has also benefited our bottom line.”

Raging Bull in Centenary Square, surrounded by people taking photos and observing it

Birmingham Bull to remain in city until September

The Birmingham 2022 Opening Ceremony Bull will remain on display in Birmingham following the conclusion of the Games. Games partners have agreed the undoubted star of the Opening Ceremony will continue to reside in Centenary Square until the end of September. The extended stay of the extremely popular Bull will allow more residents and visitors to view the Bull and continue the celebrations in line with the Birmingham 2022 Festival drawing to a close. Cllr Ian Ward, Leader of Birmingham City Council, said: “We are delighted with the response the Bull has had from the Opening Ceremony which reflects our history. “The diverse history of Birmingham is one of the reasons we were successful in our bid for the 2022 Commonwealth Games and the way residents and visitors have embraced the Bull shows how important this is. “The Opening Ceremony’s narrative illustrated how, by working together and understanding each other, we can overcome barriers and continue having challenging conversations looking forward to creating a bolder and more inclusive Birmingham.

“We consider this one of the top attractions in the city and seeing residents and visitors enjoying the Bull being in the city this week, has been brilliant and enhances the need to keep the Bull in the city for longer.” Commonwealth Games Minister Nigel Huddleston said: “The Bull had an important story to tell on women’s rights and the city’s industrial heritage during the Opening Ceremony. It has captured the public’s imagination, brought culture to a mass audience, and shown that Birmingham 2022 is about more than the worldclass sport on show. “I hope the Bull, the Commonwealth Games and its cultural programme leave lasting memories for those who have experienced it, and that they encourage more people to get involved in the West Midlands’ rich artistic and cultural offering.” Discussions are ongoing among Birmingham 2022 Games partners about what will happen to the Bull when the Birmingham 2022 Festival closes at the end of September. The six-month long festival launched in March will sustain the celebrations and excitement in the city after the Commonwealth Games. This will include the world premiere of a Peaky Blinders dance theatre event at the Birmingham Hippodrome and the spectacular PoliNations in Birmingham’s Victoria Square, as part of Unboxed Creativity in the UK.

Birmingham trials first zeroemissions bin lorry

In the latest step to reduce emissions from road traffic to combat climate change and help people live healthier lives, Birmingham City Council has begun trials of its first all-electric bin lorry. The Dennis Eagle eCollect will operate in the city’s Clean Air Zone for three weeks until August 12 col-

Volunteer army hailed as Commonwealth Games heroes

Birmingham City Council leader Cllr Ian Ward has hailed the 14,000 Commonwealth Games volunteers as ‘the beating heart of Birmingham 2022’. Leader Cllr Ian Ward & Cllr Sharon Thompson with Commonwealth Games volunteers. Known as the Commonwealth Collective, the army of volunteers in their distinctive orange and grey uniforms have become a familiar and very popular sight at Games venues and across the city over the last ten days. And, as visitors from across the UK and the wider Commonwealth have flooded into Birmingham and the West Midlands, they have all been guaranteed a warm welcome,

lecting waste and recycling material from the city centre. While doing so, it will produce no harmful nitrogen oxide gases, no climate changing carbon gases and it will not incur a charge for entering the city’s Clean Air Zone. Cllr Majid Mahmood, Cabinet Member for Environment said: “Birmingham is making the bold transition to zero-emissions operations to help fight climate change and to create clean air for people who live here, work here, or visit our city. “We know of the benefits that electric vehicles bring, and we can now look more closely at how this thanks in no small part to the volunteers with a range of duties including kit carriers, drivers, first aiders and greeters. Cllr Ward said: “The volunteers have been fantastic ambassadors for the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, and I can’t thank them enough for the brilliant way they have welcomed athletes, officials and spectators to this city region. “The 2022 Commonwealth Games is the biggest event Birmingham has ever staged and will be talked about for many years to come, so the volunteers will forever have a proud and richly deserved place in our city’s history. “I said before the Games that the Commonwealth Games, traditionally known as the friendly games, would never come to a friendlier city. That is proving to be true and much of the credit should go to the smiling, welcoming and ever-helpful volunteers. I’ve lost count of the number of times people have told me just how great the volunteers are, and I agree - 100

vehicle performs and the services it can deliver. “With our proud heritage in engineering in the city and wider West Midlands, it is also quite fitting that this ground-breaking vehicle was designed and built just down the road in Warwick. It shows how we are continuing to lead the way in technical innovation.” The eCollect is powered by five battery packs and an electric motor. It will typically collect about 11 tonnes of waste on each round and will complete two rounds in a day – just as a conventional full-sized bin lorry will. And it will work all day without needing to stop and recharge. At the end of the shift, the vehicle will return to the depot where it will be fully charged overnight to work on the next shift. Replacing conventional diesel bin lorries with electric ones would save between 25 and 35 tonnes of CO2 emissions per vehicle each year. Dennis Eagle Sales and Marketing Director Richard Taylor said: “We are delighted to be able to help Birmingham trial our all-electric vehicle. At lot of work has gone into making it very efficient and costeffective and we’re proud of what we’ve achieved.

Cllr Ward added: “As far as I’m concerned, they’re all honorary Brummies. They’ve done themselves, the city of Birmingham and the Commonwealth Games proud.” August 2022
