WJA’s DIVA Awards have helped many budding jewelry designers get closer to their goals. Now in its seventh year, the annual national design competition is open to WJA members and nonmembers.
"We want to promote women designing and also promote WJA as an outlet for women who may not know another way to get their work out there," said Susan Elliott, who is co-chair of the DIVA Awards Committee. "Some of the people who enter are working in stores and some are working in manufacturing and other sectors."
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
