Zoe Harding

2004 QEST Scholar - Goldsmithing & Jewellery

QEST provided a launchpad early on in jeweller Zoe’s career, funding further training in the form of specialist short courses.

Since receiving the scholarship Zoe has been made a Fellow of the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths, and has won a number of top industry awards including a Lonmin Design Innovation Award 2011 and The Goldsmiths’ Company Award in 2013. Her work has been sold in prestigious outlets from Fortnum & Mason to Holland & Holland and she has designed regularly for top names in the wider jewellery industry with long stints for Vivienne Westwood and Swarovski.

QEST goes way beyond the initial award and they have been there for continual support. I have loved every moment and hope to be involved with many more events in the future.
