Mort Abelson Scholarship

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!
