An up-and-coming jewellery designer has been shortlisted for a special award, which may intrigue watch fans to check out their designs.

Robyn Kinsman Blake, who comes from the Scottish Borders, will be up for the Prince's Scottish Youth Business Trust (PSYBT) Jolomo Awards, Professional Jeweller reported.

The designer, who is only 23-years-old, is one of seven finalists up for the honour, which comes with a £3,000 cash prize and will be judged by John Lowrie Morrison.

Launched in March 2008, the Jolomo PSYBT Awards hopes to inspire those with aspirations to be involved in arts and crafts to setup their own business.

Young designers are being given plenty of chances to showcase their skills in the coming months, including with the Celebrating the Cuff contest, which aims to get people to design their best cuffs and have a chance to see it displayed on the catwalk, the news source recently reported.
