Hello once again!
Wrapped up 2019 with the IJS Awards Singapore- a golden recognition for my hard work and I thought I should share this with you!
The IJS Awards is a collaboration between experts in jewellery commerce, design and
education and was envisioned by Conference & Exhibition Management Services Pte Ltd
(CEMS), Caratell and the Jewellery Design and Management International School (JDMIS)
Singapore, to become the definitive symbol of excellence in the jewellery arts in Asia.
Encompassing three categories – the Open Category, Emerging Talent Category and the
Creative Collections Category, contestants were challenged to design and showcase the
jewellery that best represents ‘Fantasy’, the 2019 IJS theme.
Guest-of-Honour Ms Dr Lily Neo, presented the prizes to the winners at the prize-giving ceremony.
42 Finalists from all three categories were entered into a worldwide public voting competition
that generated 3188 Votes from 1774 individuals from 62 different countries. The most popular
design in this segment of the competition was awarded the ‘People’s Choice Award’.
I wish to express my gratitude to all my friends, family, supporters and well wishers who put in their time to vote and appreciate my work. Thank you for your love and support !
The most important lesson I’ve learnt from this experience is that our mind is our greatest power and by believing in ourselves, things do manifest when we least expect! Sometimes there’s fear… it’s not always easy but what’s important is to keep going… whatever it is that we do- to do it with full heart and it does bear fruit in some way or the other.
And as for 2020 I wish for us all to CLEAR out any thoughts and beliefs that may be holding us back from being our best.
Let’s each and every one of us SHINE and KEEP SHINING… starts from the heart folks!
