The main film that I produced for ‘Studio Silver Today’, a pioneering initiative by the Goldsmiths’ Company in collaboration with the National Trust’s Kedleston Hall to broaden awareness of today’s modern silver movement.

From 5th March through to 29th October 2011, visitors to the Kedleston Hall will be able to admire silver creations by one of the country’s most talented young silversmiths, Theresa Nguyen.

The exhibition tells the story of the Goldsmiths’ Company and the career of Theresa Nguyen, one of today’s national treasures.
