I have been sent through a few of the official images from the Observer Ethical Awards last month, so I thought I’d post some of them up…
We put the white pieces in the main room of the ceremony as they seemed to fit in better with the decor and the lighting. The other pieces I showed with the colourful marble papers were better suited in the entrance hall.

Livia Firth (that’s The Firth’s wife to you and I) presenting the Global Campaigner award to Greg Valerio.
Greg invited Colombian gold miner Luis Americo Mosquera to accept the award alongside him, so it was a really lovely moment. Americo represents the Oro Verde mining group – one of the first groups certified against the Fairtrade and Fairmined Standards.
It was the Oro Verde mine which supplied the gold for Livia Firth’s Oscar jewellery, which she wore on the red carpet when husband Colin accepted his Academy Award for Best Actor, so it was fitting that she presented the award on the night.
