As a partnership effort between the Southern Jewelry Travelers Association and the Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, Ga., the Student Design Competition recognizes the outstanding work of the school’s design students. The competition is also designed to give budding jewelry designers an inside look at the commercial jewelry industry.

Nak Armstrong and Anthony Camargo will join a panel of jewelry association leaders, SJTA members, retail jewelry store owners and SCAD faculty to judge the entries from current matriculating SCAD students and alumni. Pieces are evaluated on the basis of overall design, marketability, wear ability, and craftsmanship. Each participant will have the opportunity to place first, second, or third in each of the following categories and/or receive the overall reward of “Best in Show”: Gold and Platinum, Silver, Alternative Materials and Methods and High-Tech Design.
