The British Society of Enamellers (BSOE) has appointed a new Vice-Chair, Silversmith and Enameller Monika Kamycka, owner of contemporary fine jewellery brand, Mona Pink.
The BSOE will be announcing further changes to its Board over the coming months, with Monika joining the senior leadership team, focused on the continued promotion of British Enamelling excellence across the UK and beyond.
Commenting on her appointment, Monika said: “I’m pleased and proud to have been appointed as Vice-Chair, just a couple of months after having joined the Board as a committee member at the March AGM.
I was very motivated to join the Board, at a time when we have many exciting initiatives planned for 2018-19. I am also very much looking forward to working closely together with other members of the Committee and the Society to further elevate the status of enamel in modern jewellery.”
Monika employs the highly specialist and delicate skill of Plique-a-Jour enamelling in her Art Nouveau inspired Argentium Silver range and is a passionate advocate of enamelling education and promotion.
“This is a pivotal time for the entire jewellery trade and I am excited about the role the BSOE might have to play. Enamelling is an art form that is extremely close to my heart.
I hope that the passion I have for it, is demonstrated through the jewellery that I design. I intend to bring this passion and pride to my new role as part of the BSOE.” Monika added.
“The BSOE is very happy, firstly to welcome Monika to the executive committee but specially to announce her election as Vice-Chair.
As well as being a talented enameller, she brings great organisational skills to the role and we look forward to a splendid year of progress in all aspects of society administration and promotion.” Maureen Carswell Hon. Secretary and BSOE Founder.
