I found out today that I got 1st and 2nd place in the rings category in the Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist Jewelry Arts Awards. The winning pieces will be published in the Sept issue of Lapidary Journal.
I got 1st place in the rings category in 2006. Last year I didn't enter because I missed the deadline. I had marked it on my calendar as April 1st when really it was March 1st. So it's good that I had 2 pieces win this year to make up for missing last year.
