New York—Give these students an A+! The submissions are in for Accessories magazine’s first ever ICE Crystal Jewelry Awards competition, sponsored by Preciosa and FIT, and they are amazing!
The competition paired FIT jewelry design students up with professional jewelry industry mentors to help them bring initial concepts to a “real world” level. Each student watched Accessories magazine’s Fall/Winter 2014/15 trend webinar for inspiration, then selected one of the 5 Big Trends to work from. After submitting trend boards and sketches for three pieces of jewelry to qualify, the 10 selected students worked with their mentors for support and ideas. The mentors helped the students hone their respective visions, always keeping the market and saleability in mind but making sure the student never sacrificed her original style. You can see more of the behind the scenes here and here.
Below, a look at the 10 contestant final submissions, listed in alphabetical order. (We will announce the 6 finalists shortly. But we couldn’t resist showing all the submissions because they’re just that good!)
