I am thrilled to announce that I have been chosen as the winner of the Spotlight Award for my design, "Detachable Earrings".
The Spotlight Award honors a different pearl variety each year. This year the pearl of choice was baroque-shaped pearls of all varieties, saltwater and freshwater. The category highlighted designs where 75 percent of the piece featured a baroque-shaped pearl. The winner had to showcase the pearl in a clever way and create a design that would entice a person who was not a fan of pearls to start collecting.
My winning piece is a pair of earrings with detachable South Sea baroque pearl, natural Namibian chalcedony, and diamond earrings in eighteen karat white gold..
