Oct '08
The Italian Jewellery Awards, taking place 15 November 2008 in Amalfi, Italy announces the following five finalists to its selected judges:

• Sarah Ho; the devoted founder of SHO Fine Jewellery, aged 29 and qualified as Goldsmith & Gemmologist from the HRD Institute of Gemmology in Antwerp, Belgium. Sarah has integrated fashion into her jewellery by carrying seasonal trends, ensuring SHO designs stays fresh and exciting.

• Marisa Hodern, is one of the three jewellery designers behind Missoma; a mother and daughter team, all sharing a passion for modern and contemporary jewellery design. Specialising in 18ct gold vermeil jewellery with precious and semi-precious stones, Missoma has become known for its unique designs and instantly recognisable vibrant colours! Loved by style icons such as Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Biel and Scarlett Johanssen, Missoma has attracted a loyal and ever-growing fan-base in the UK and abroad, and is stocked in over 15 countries worldwide including department stores such as Harrods, Harvey Nichols and Liberty.

• Anthony Roussel, graduated as jewellery designer from London Metropolitan University in 2007. Although he is trained in metalwork, his real love for materials is found in wood. By combining an ancient organic material with new digital design tools, he has caught the attention of key international galleries and collectors.

• Ornella Iannuzzi, Ornella established her business after graduating from the Royal College of Art in June 2007. Ornella pays homage to nature through the jewellery using only materials from sustainable sources, exploring vulnerability and the impact of that man has had on the environment.

Today she is working with different online galleries such as “Things we love” or “Object Fetish”- based in the USA. Her latest collections were featured in the press both nationally and internationally such as in the Retail Jeweller, Jewellery Focus, Jewellery In Britain, J-Dex, Goldsmith or Dreams magazine. Furthermore, she was shortlisted last July for the UK Jewellery Award, in both categories “Young Designer of the Year” & “Jewellery Designer of the Year”.
