Awards and Politics!
What happens when under one roof dazzling jewels do the talking and walking? When creativity meets art and excellence the outcome ought be glittering and glamorous! Recently i got the opportunity to attend (among others in the past) a sparkling award night hosted by JJS-IJ Jewellers where the Creme de la creme of the Indian jewelry industry added grandeur and splendour with their sizzling creations complementing the awards night on the ramp! Thank you JJS-IJ for nominating my jewelry in the designer and ring category.
Approx 600 participating entries were registered over 22 design categories. Some of the designs and concepts that caught my attention including the deserving winning jewels are featured here. While the paparazzi did their job well on featuring the winning designs and designers in various categories, i thought of reaching out to the designers who made it to the nominations. Their concept, inspiration, journey of manufacturing intricate masterpieces with elaborate craftsmanship is an award in itself.
StylePrer feels; Creativity speaks for itself, sky’s the limit. Every design in my opinion is a winner because being a designer i truly understand the effort, detailed manufacturing and nitty-gritty a designer attends to while manufacturing a master piece. In my opinion the industry needs to support and promote fresh talent and let their creative juices flow.
My question to the jewelry industry, why is it that upcoming talent and designers don’t get recognition?
