Entertainment The hunt is on to find the next jewellery star
Former Formula One commentator Murray Walker dies aged 97
Formula One commentator Murray Walker, whose broadcasting career spanned more than 50 years, worked for the BBC and ITV, before he retired from commentating in 2001. Walker will be remembered as the undisputed voice of Formula One. His unique, high-octane style - once described by Australian comic Clive James as 'sounding like a man whose trousers are on fire' - is forever ingrained in British sporting culture.
As with many crafts, there has been a boom in homemade and handmade jewellery making during the pandemic.
“Growth in our industry makes perfect sense during these difficult times,” Emma White, founder of The Jewellery Makers said last year.
“Jewellery is all about empowering ourselves with confidence and showing off our personality or giving gifts that have sentimental meaning or show we really care. Nothing encompasses these ideas better than handmade jewellery. It’s unique and precious while also making a statement and showcasing who we are as an individual.”
Hunts Future open - as a last order?

His own future could then be elsewhere. © imago images Whether Aaron Hunt will also attract the HSV jersey beyond this summer, is uncertain. "I rarely had such a good footballer in my team and have huge respect for him as humans," says HSV-Coach Daniel Thiune about Aaron Hunt. In view of this praise, it should actually be a pure formalism to extend the 34-year-old's seasonal contract. it is not.
The idea for six-part jewellery making contest All That Glitters: Britain’s Next Jewellery Star, which begins tonight, was first announced by the BBC in summer of 2019.
Various things got in the way of its release, but now appears to be the ideal time to launch the show.
Unfolding inside a specially built workshop in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, All That Glitters will see eight talented jewellers from all walks of life aim to prove they are a cut above the rest and claim the All That Glitters crown.
The series follows a format similar to The Great British Bake Off and other challenge shows, and has contestants designing items to a brief each week – one for the mass market and a second custom item for a specific client.
Tonight’s first test, the bestseller, challenges the contestants to make three silver bangles. Then they face the bespoke challenge from a real client, Ben, who wants a pendant necklace for his mother to wear to Buckingham Palace when she collects her MBE.
'The Witcher' season 2 photos give first look at 'Wild Hunt' riders
Ciri may be in trouble when "The Witcher" season 2 ends given the appearance of the Red Riders in the finale.A small unit of the cast and crew of the Netflix series hit Saunton Beach to film the Wild Hunt scenes. The photos shared on Sunday by Twitter user @NetflixWitcher show the menacing Red Riders on horseback, armed with their daunting armour and spears. They appear to be charging at something or someone as they have their weapons drawn and positioned forward.
Over the next six weeks, the challenges will explore the wildly different styles and aesthetics that can be found across different types of jewellery and some will even be inspired by the world’s most famous and coveted pieces
Every episode is bursting with science, history, and culture: from molecular structures and ancient Egyptians to red carpet styles.
The BBC says: “The materials they are working with are some of the most valuable objects on earth: gold, silver, diamonds and sapphires. And they will be doing so in the heart of Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, home to the highest concentration of jewellery businesses in Europe and some of the UK’s best diamond cutters, gold bullion dealers and gemmology labs.”
Katherine Ryan, famous for appearances on panel shows such as Mock the Week, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and more, has been brought in to host.
“I am so delighted to be a part of the beautiful show that is All That Glitters,” the Canadian comedian says. “I’ve always loved wearing jewellery and it’s fascinating to learn about the intricate process of making these pieces. I’m in awe of the skill and artistry of our eight jewellers, who manage to transform the client’s emotion into objects of beauty that last forever.”

In The Most Relatable Moment Of The Oscars, Youn Yuh-jung 'Blacked Out' When Brad Pitt Presented Her Award .
And when asked what Brad smells like, the actress quipped: 'I didn't smell him, I'm not a dog.'The 73 year old was clearly delighted to be given her award by the Hollywood heartthrob. And she let us all know in her acceptance speech, with perhaps one of the most iconic intros we've ever heard. 'Mr. Brad Pitt, finally,' she started. 'Nice to meet you. Where were you when we were filming in Tulsa?' Composing herself, she then put her hands over her face. However - even though this would be literally our reaction anyway - she did have reason to ask where Brad was when the cast were filming, as he was an executive producer on the film.
