Instagram is a great source of information and inspiration for many artists, designers, and exhibition goers, as well as a great platform for networking, sales, and the exchange of skills. I started my Instagram page in pursuit of finding those great talents. I have been following some talented jewellery designers, and am madly in love with what many produce for their fans. As I am a trained jewellery lover, I pursue jewellery designers who have the same goals as my own. There are some jewellery designers and houses that I follow who display an artistic approach to their feed. Find out about them here! ;-)
