Mark Nuell, Featured Maker
31 March - 10:53

Mark has been a studio holder with Craft Central for more than twenty-five years. He is a very valued member of our community, taking part in our open studios and exhibitions. He is a regular exhibitor at leading contemporary jewellery fairs such as the Goldsmith’s Fair. With  Mark’s welcoming and engaging approach he always has a circle of interested visitors inspired by his evident passion for his beautiful work. He is commissioned to make a special piece of jewellery, often to celebrate a personal event and his customers speak highly of his concern to understand exactly what they want.

Mark’s inspiration for becoming a jeweller came from early contact with gemstones in Australia, where his father mined sapphires. Mark learnt to cut and polish these stones spending six years as a gem cutter and later studying jewellery design and making in Sydney. He continues to visit the sapphire mines where he meets the miners and cutters, giving him unique access to rare and beautiful sapphires.

Mark’s jewellery uses bold lustrous stones such as aquamarines, tourmalines and moonstones, expertly cut to accentuate their natural beauty. Distinctive sapphires in shades of blue, green and yellow come to life nestled amongst 18ct gold and silver. 

Using his metalworking and gem-setting skills he creates a constantly evolving collection, attracting collectors and those who appreciate fine craftsmanship and design.  Mark works to commission from his London studio at Craft Central. This is jewellery to fall in love with and really enjoy wearing.

2 Buildings.100 Designers. New Products.

Made in Clerkenwell is a bi-annual celebration of Craft Central resident designer-makers and Network members. Held across our two historic buildings, this is an opportunity for the public to go ‘behind the scenes’ and explore the studios of our renowned design community.

Open Studios
Throughout Craft Central St John's Square & Clerkenwell Green, you'll be welcomed to discover and meet some the UK's most notable designer makers in their private studios. This is your chance to purchase and commission directly from these designer makers.

Inspired by NEW!
This spring, Craft Central is focusing on all things new. Come and see new collections, prototypes and be the first to buy pieces direct from the designer-maker before these collections hit the retailers. 

Spotlight: Award
To support our members develop new high-quality collections we are offering an award for Made In Clerkenwell Spring; ‘Best body of new work’. Our winner will be announced during the show via email and social media. We will also be offering a runner-up prize of a free week in our immensely popular Corner Shop. 

Newby Teas
During each day we will be offering visitors samples from Newby Teas who produce some of the finest teas in the world, whilst they shop the show.
