Couture Jewelry Awards

Jewelry designer Suz Andreasen asked herself that "what if" question on day: "What if there was a couture-level award available for jewelry designers?"

From that question came her goal – to create one. And goal has been realized with the Couture Jewelry Awards, which has an official call for entries already.

In a press release, the designer explains why she felt there was a need for an award such as this:

"I grew frustrated with the lack of fair jurying and also basic acknowledgment for exceptional work within the arena of traditional awards."

The concept is not a new one but somehow when Suz Andreasen gets her teeth into something the vision seems clear: Create an award, give a medal and a cash prize. Get museums to jury the piece. How hard can that be?

While most people would throw their hands in the air at the very idea taking on a project so huge, Suz doesn't flinch at the idea. To quarry her forces, Andreasen called everyone she knew and asked them to get involved.

I think this is a great idea. There are a lot of really talented jewelry designers out there who get little recognition. Obviously, Andreasen is ranked among some of the finest jewelry artists, as shown by a few of these example designs:

    Allen Iverson broke out his newest signature shoe, the Reebok Answer XII, during the first game between the Buy Reebok Answer XII Invictus Shoes in November 2008.
    The Reebok Answer XII Invictus On Sale basketball shoe features a leather upper with internal mock bootie construction that provides maximum comfort.
    The Nike zoom BB IIreceived its design cues from Japanese-born Reebok designer Nike Zoom BB II Basketball Shoes, who also designed the Answer X. Both Winfield and Kanata have been trading off between the past three Buy Cheap Nike Zoom BB II Men’s Basketball shoes to allow for a longer design window and more attention to the development process. It could be argued that Iverson’s series lost its gusto during the VI to IX era. Luckily, for Iverson and his fans, the line has been in good hands the past three years.
