May 18, 2014, marked two very special events: the 14th annual Saul Bell Design Award celebration dinner and the opening night dinner of the 28th annual Santa Fe Symposium®. What made the evening truly extraordinary was combining the two events into one, in what Alan Bell, President of Rio Grande, described as a “mashup.”

Take a closer look at the boundary-breaking design of the 14th annual Saul Bell Design Award competition winners. Today’s post showcases all fifteen extraordinary winners and gives you some insight into their techniques, materials, and creative approach. Here are the spectacular winners. . .

This year, for the first time, the Saul Bell Design Award Competition gala dinner was celebrated in conjunction with the Annual Santa Fe Symposium®. Jewelry designers from all over the world, recognized for their craftsmanship and boundary-breaking design rubbed elbows with industry experts who are at the vanguard of innovation in jewelry manufacturing and technology. The meeting of these two sides of the jewelry-making mind made for a great night!

Today, The Studio is thrilled to unveil the 35 finalist pieces of the 2014 Saul Bell Design Award competition! Across seven categories and from nine different countries spanning the globe, this is the best of jewelry design and it brings us one step closer to the announcement of SBDA winners in May! Take a look and be inspired.

Just a few days ago, a group of five esteemed judges gathered to share their expertise, scrutinize, and score the 35 finalist pieces of the 2014 Saul Bell Design Award competition. Take a look behind-the-scenes as we inch closer to the gala awards event, here in Albuquerque this May, which will honor the extraordinary winners of this international celebration of the best in jewelry design.

The Saul Bell Design Award Gala celebration will happen right here in beautiful Albuquerque, New Mexico, in May of 2014. And the timing is excellent! The celebration will take place in conjunction with one of the most prestigious and mind-expanding events in our industry—The Santa Fe Symposium!

The 2014 Saul Bell Design Award call-for entries campaign was kicked-off months ago, and just a few days ago, a panel of discerning and impressive first-round judges gathered at Albuquerque’s historic Los Poblanos Cultural Center to spend an entire day scrutinizing hundreds of entries, conferring with one another, and finally selecting five finalists in each of the competition’s categories!
