GOOD AS GOLD: Stephen Webster has scooped Best International Jewelry Designer 2013 at the spring edition of the VicenzaORO trade fair. He received the Andrea Palladio award in Vicenza, Italy, where Italy’s premier international jewelry fair takes place. “The Italian jewelry industry is respected throughout the world for its ingenuity, creativity, and flare. To be recognized from within the ranks of such companies makes our award seem very special,” he said, who accepted the award over the weekend. There is no rest for Webster: Later this month, he will travel to the Couture jewelry show in Las Vegas with a clutch emerging designers from the British Fashion Council’s Rock Vault show. Designers Fernando Jorge, Hannah Martin, Imogen Belfield, Jo Hayes Ward, Melanie Georgacopoulos, Tomasz Donocik and Yunus & Eliza will present their jewelry collections to U.S. press and buyers at the Stephen Webster ballroom.
