The North Carolina Jewelers Association (NCJA) announced the winners of its annual Design Competition. Oz Hefner of Oz’s Jewelers in Hickory won Category I and Category III, in addition to Best of Show.  Keith Hipp of Ellis Jewelers in Lexington took top honors in Category II and the People’s Choice Award.  The competition recognizes the outstanding work of North Carolina jewelry designers.

“The Design Contest categories are tiered, based on cost of materials used in the creation of the piece,” stated NCJA President Tracey Love.  “Design work creates unique opportunities for jewelers to differentiate themselves.  Customers need to look no further than their local jeweler to find self-expression in jewelry form.  Our Design Contest is the venue by which these designers can be recognized for their craftsmanship and design abilities. Congratulations to both designers for their respective awards.”

Any NCJA member is eligible to enter the annual contest.  Entries are judged for beauty of overall design, quality of workmanship, marketability and creative use of materials.  To learn more about NCJA or the 2012 competition, visit www.ncjewelers.org.
