PrattMWP Jewelry Students Receive National Recognition
PrattMWP alumnus, Lisa Krusalik (’14) was awarded first place in the 2015 Saul Bell Design Emerging Artist competition. Her work will be featured in an exhibition at the JCK show in Las Vegas in June. The JCK show is the leading jewelry event in North America where the latest awe-inspiring domestic and international designers and most sought-after trends in jewelry are showcased each year. Lisa’s award winning piece, Hollow Brooch, was made during her PrattMWP sophomore jewelry class in 2014. As the first-place winner of the Emerging Artist Award, both Lisa and the PrattMWP jewelry department will each receive a $500 gift certificate from Rio Grande as well as free tuition for Lisa to attend any of the jewelrymaking courses that Rio offers during the next year.
