*Ari Norman is the only silversmith to date to win the Queen's Award for Export Achievement (in 1989) and was awarded Freedom of the City of London in 1992 for services rendered to the British Silver Industry.
On a personal level, Norman's grandfather was killed in Auschwitz as a victim of the Holocaust. This had a major influence on his character and attitude to life. Born Leon Norman, he changed his name to Ari as a teenager, to reflect his true Jewish heritage.
He stated in 2012, "I was brought up by my father who was gravely affected by the Holocaust, because his own father was murdered at Auschwitz. I learned the hard way that you have to stand up and be counted, not be scared to show that you're Jewish, and be ready to fight for your independence."
