First Place
"On the Wing"
Debbie Sheezel
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Artist Statement: I am fascinated by butterflies, their shapes and the profusion of colours they are found in. This double butterfly necklace is in the cloisonn√© technique with subtle opalescence, fine and sterling silver, and 18K, 22K and 24K gold. The stones are faceted blue quartz. It is stamped with the Gold & Silversmith's Guild of Australia marking system and my maker's mark. 


Second Place
"Orbit #2 Pin/Pendant"
Amy Roper Lyons
Summit, NJ, USA

Artist Statement: "Orbit #2 Pin/Pendant" is hand-fabricated from 18k and 24k gold, enamel, lapis and diamonds. Drawing inspiration from ancient mosaics and astronomy images, it is part of a current series merging two keen interests: the past, through the art of ancient times, and the future, through space exploration.
