There are many jewelry designers known worldwide and there are always news ones trying to make their way to success. Today we will present the emerging jewelry designers you should know.
This are 3 of the names you should start noting regarding jewelry designing: Babette Shennan, Stanislav Drokin and Rhyme & Reason.They may soon be more familiar to jewelry buyers after winning the Centurion Emerging Designer competition. For their effort, they received free exhibition space to present their work to luxury jewelry retailers in the US and that’s a big step for someone that needs a starting point. With this success isn’t guaranteed, but it certainly helps.
Babette Shennan’s work is closely linked to her travels and memories. During her graduate gemology program at the Gemological Institute of America, she won The Silver Trend Project design competition. More recently, she won second place “Best In Show” at the Women’s Jewelry Association’s Designer By The Bay Event in Northern California. She divides her time between San Francisco and New York City.
Stanislav Drokin, born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, has a great deal of training and education in the jewelry making arts. While still in school, he worked as an apprentice engraver at an industrial factory, carving stamps for marking technical details. After seven years, he became a master engraver. He also studied jewelry from 1992 to 1994 and eventually found work creating master models for jewelry companies.
In 1994 Stanislav founded his own jewelry atelier. Four years later, he became a member of the Designers Union of Ukraine and an international association, the Society of Designers. He also went for further study in the gemological centers of Kiev, Ukraine; Idar-Oberstein, Germany; and Warsaw, Poland. A winner of several design competitions in Ukraine and Russia, he earned a master’s degree in design in 2011.
