And The Winner Is...

It's that time of year again and we are announcing the winner to this year's FIYAH Jewellery Award. Firstly, we'd like to give a huge thank you to all entrants that made the competition a huge success. The winner was chosen by all our staff at FIYAH. Everyone placed their votes for the entry that they thought was the best and deserved the £1000 prize.

Let's take a look at the entries with the most votes.

 

Pinky Promise by Samantha Roberts

Samantha's unique entry warmed the hearts of everyone at FIYAH with a wonderfully put together collage and designs for a friendship bracelet which symbolises a love that will last forever.

This is a feeling that we have found a lot of our friends to symbolise with FIYAH jewellery.

Diana is an ambitious creative student currently studying in Ravensbourne. Her entry uses crystals that she grew herself because crystals are known for their healing and protecting power. With the neckwear, she wanted to create an energetic shield for the wearer.

The winner of the 2019 FIYAH Jewellery Award is... Mizuki Tochigi who's excellent entry stole the show this year. Born in Tokyo and currently living in London, her entry is taken from her collection -Unseen- 2019 and is a ring and necklace combination representing the “unseen” pattern in her daily life.

She was up against some stiff competition though and we all had a really tough time making a final choice. We bless all of those who entered.
