Winner of Saul Bell Award

Recently, Valerie traveled to New Mexico, where she was a finalist for the 2017 Saul Bell Award for her original design, “Old World Vines” neckpiece.

At a well-attended celebration dinner held on May 21, during the Santa Fe Symposium in Albuquerque, NM, Rio Grande, Valerie was announced as a finalist.

One of the jewelry industry’s foremost design events, this competition is judged by jewelers and industry leaders who are masters of their craft. They look for originality of design, successful incorporation of materials, wearability (except in the Hollowware category) and quality of workmanship as they examine each finalist piece both by hand and on a model.

Please join me in congratulating Valerie for her impressive accomplishment!
