I never imagined I’d be able to outdo my recent Drysdale Awards, so I’m beyond thrilled to say I’m a finalist in the fine jewelry category of Fashion Group International’s Rising Star Awards for emerging talent! The list of all the categories and nominees is in WWD today.
FGI is a nonprofit organization that helps its 5,000 fashion-industry members stay on top of what’s going on in their fast-changing business. It’s a great way to network. I like that it’s very inclusive, representing women’s and men’s apparel, accessories, beauty and home/interior design professions. If you’re in the biz (or hope to be in the biz), I highly recommend clicking here to join.
FGI members are voting on the Rising Star contenders this month. The awards will announced at a lunch on January 27. (Tickets to the event are for sale here.) Cross your fingers for me that voters show my Chicken in Egg locket, Matilda sword necklace and Hathor swivel ring some love.
