Saul Bell Design Award

The Saul Bell Design Award competition has both inspired and challenged jewelry designers around the globe for the past decade, and now in its twelfth year, it continues to recognize artists whose work challenges traditional perceptions of jewelry design. Named for the founder of Rio Grande, the competition celebrates Saul's spirit and legacy by inviting artists and students to enter their most innovative creations in any of six categories: Gold/Platinum, Silver/Argentium® Silver, Beads, Metal Clay, Hollowware or Enamel.
