Press Release: MJSA, the association for jewelry makers and designers, has announced the winners of its 2014 MJSA Vision Awards. This year, the annual contest added awards for jewelers making good use of CAD/CAM technology and digital marketing, along with awards for the creative use of laser welders. The contest also still celebrates outstanding overall design excellence, future of design entries (students), and custom design prowess.

Categories were open to independent or company-employed U.S. and international jewelry designers. The Future of the Industry Award was open to any student enrolled in an art, design, or jewelry-related program at a college, university, or a proprietary technical school. Winners were selected by a distinguished panel of jewelry designers, manufacturers and editors of leading jewelry trade publications.
