It is that time of year when jewelry designers across the globe select their best pieces and show off their one of a kind works to each other, and the international jewelry community at large. The three largest arenas to best do this are; the JCK “Jewelers’ Choice Awards”, The AGTA Spectrum Awards and the International Pearl Design Competition. In 2011/2012 my father placed several designs in 2nd and 3rd place at the JCK “Jewelers’ Choice Awards” He also received the highest distinction/award in the 2011 International Pearl Competition as well as two first place awards. THIS year he has his fingers crossed for a first place at JCK and a placement a AGTA ;0). Check back and we will keep you posted!!!!
