Who would expect to see replicas of London’s famous Trafalgar Square bronze lions in Tokyo. …! They have been outside Mitsukoshi department store's main entrance since 1914.

Just before I took to the stage to present the Goldsmith's Craft and Design Council Awards. I am wearing one of my favourite brooches made by Hiroki Iwata, born in 1965, who is the Associate Professor at the Kobe Design University. This Brooch is made in silver, gold leaf and enamel. @katiejonesjapangallery @masterpiecelondon #hirokiiwata #oneofakind #craftsmanship #innovative #creativity @gcdcawards #contemporary #brooch #jewellery
