I'm delighted to announce that I've won two MJSA Vision Awards this year!
Chrysanthemum Fold Earrings with Tahitian black pearl drops
My Chrysanthemum Fold Earrings won Second Place in the Professional Excellence, 4 Years in Business category! They feature oxidized sterling silver and 18 karat yellow gold with Harmony recycled diamonds and Tahitian black pearl drops.
(And the first prize winner was my friend Sophia Hu, whose work is absolutely stunning and always a treat to see!)
Rough Montana Sapphire and Diamond Dangle Earrings
And My Rough Montana Sapphire and Diamond Dangle Earrings won First Place for Responsible Practices Distinction - for using domestically sourced, un-cut Montana sapphires, Harmony recycled diamonds and entirely recycled metals - sterling silver with 18 & 22 karat yellow gold. (And FYI - all of my pieces use recycled metals.)
It seems that there hasn't been a whole lot of good news these days, so I was just thrilled to find out about the awards and I couldn't wait to share. I hope you're getting a few bits of good news in your world as well!
