Palladium and platinum jewellery pieces were among the
winners of the MJSA's Vision Awards.
Designers won awards in six categories: professional design
excellence, gold distinction, platinum distinction, palladium
distinction, laser distinction and custom design distinction.
Susan Drake from Spectrum Art & Jewelry won the platinum
distinction prize for her Spanish Dancer ring in platinum with a
fuchsia sapphire and micro-pavé diamonds.
Drake also shared the top award in the palladium distinction
category with Ezra Satok-Wolman, Atelier Hg & Co. Inc.
Nghi Nguyen of NGHI Design was awarded the laser distinction
award for the Hephaestus ring in palladium with a 150-carat rock
crystal centre stone and reverse-set diamonds
"This year's MJSA Vision Awards illustrate an impressive
commitment to jewellery making and design in the 21st century,"
said MJSA president and chief executive officer David Cochran.
"The winners' authoritative command of metals, gems and
contemporary materials is matched by the imagination they
demonstrated in creating their pieces."
