Pins of Praise

In recognition of the efforts made by the medical community during the health crisis, we are united to show our support for ‘NHS Charities Together,’ a membership organisation representing, supporting and championing NHS Charities. The British Academy of Jewellery launched its Pins of Praise design competition in support of NHS staff and volunteers working to save lives during the Covid-19 pandemic in the summer of 2020. 

Open to both BAJ students and the general public, the competition challenged participants to design a brooch pin that could be sold to raise money for NHS Charities Together, a membership organisation representing and supporting over 250 NHS charities.

All work was judged by a panel of professional jewellers and NHS workers, who selected 4 winners,  external jeweller Elisabeth Barton, and BAJ students Caitlin Rawe, Jacqueline Chisholm and Kristina Lindsay. The winning designs were produced and sold through the BAJ website, with all profits going to NHS Charities Together.
