Malcolm Appleby Primrose Bangle featured in online auction

Our online auction, which goes live on 28th May, will be raising funds for our Bursary Programme. We are thrilled to reveal that our auction will also include a prize draw featuring a stunning Malcolm Appleby Primrose bangle.

Dr Malcolm Appleby MBE is known primarily as an engraver and he is considered to be one of the most original and highly skilled craftsmen working in Britain today. His prolific output ranges from sculptural table pieces to small silver buttons. His career spans over 50 years, promoting engraving through his own work and providing opportunities for young engravers and silversmiths:

“Engraving is central to my design and art; it is from engraving that my other skills have evolved. I enjoy harnessing other craftsmen’s skills to extend my own creative theories of form-related goldsmithing techniques.”

Dr Appleby’s bangles are regarded as exceptional examples of his work and have become some of his most well-known and loved pieces, the form allowing him to experiment with different styles and themes, typically featuring local flora and fauna.

The ‘Primrose’ is one of his most popular bangles, featuring 13 flower heads, known in the north-east as the ‘Spinkie’, and is a delightful harbinger of Spring. Created like a flower-daisy chain, the bangle is created in sterling silver with 18ct gold beads in the centre of each flower.


The prize draw for the Primrose bangle will be limited to 100 tickets and full details on how to enter will be published on the auction website on the 28th May. The draw will close at 6.00pm on Thursday 17th June.
