I recently applied for the Mort Abelson Scholarship at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts
. This unique scholarship was funded by designers, for designers and consists of an all-expenses-paid trip for one recipient
to attend a master class of their choice at the school's upcoming International Masters Symposium
. The contest honors Mort Abelson, who was instrumental in raising the awareness of jewelry design and promoting jewelry designers in the U.S.
Unfortunately I did not win the scholarship. However, I was awarded Honorable Mention! I am happy that my work was received so well and I will try again next year! Wish me luck!
