Saul Bell 2012 shortlist

The shortlist for the prestigious Saul Bell design award 2012 have been announced. The prize, now in it's tenth year, awards innovation in the following categories of jewellery making; metal clay, enamel, gold/platinum, silver, hollowware and beads. There is a lot of competition for this prize and to be shortlisted is a real achievement.
These are my personal favourite pieces from the shortlist (the full shortlist can be found here).
We'll have to wait until June 2012 to see who wins!
