SCE students triumph in the 17th Hong Kong Jewellery Design Competition

持續教育學院學生勇奪香港珠寶設計比賽冠軍及優異獎

Students from the School of Continuing Education (SCE) got the best ever results in the Hong Kong Jewellery Design Competition (Student Group). In addition to Betsy Chan Mei-lan from the Certificate in Jewellery Design and Production programme, who captured the championship with her necklace entitled “Hand in Hand”, and her classmates Tam Wing-chi and Pang Lai-suen, who both won merit awards with their ring and bracelet entitled “Dwelling” and “Balance of Tai Chi” respectively, five other students were also made finalists. 
 
To reflect the “Harmony” theme of this year’s contest, Betsy used leather and figurines made of zircons and various coloured precious metals to represent people of different races, religions and backgrounds joining hands to create a better future. 
 
The competition was jointly organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, Hong Kong Jewellers' & Goldsmiths' Association, Hong Kong Jewellery & Jade Manufacturers Association, Hong Kong Jewelry Manufacturers' Association and Diamond Federation of Hong Kong, China. Entries of the Open Group and Student Group were evaluated based on creativity and innovation, aesthetics, craftsmanship and wearability and relevance to the theme. The winning pieces were displayed in the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show.

持續教育學院學員於「第17屆香港珠寶設計比賽」(學生組)創下歷來最佳成績。修讀珠寶首飾設計及製作證書課程的陳美蘭,憑著名為「攜手」的項鍊奪得冠軍,同一課程的譚永智及彭勵璇亦分別以戒指「蝸居」及手鐲「太極的平衡」獲頒優異獎;而另外五位學員則躋身「入圍作品」之列。
 
學生組冠軍陳美蘭的項鍊「攜手」,由鋯石、銀及皮繩等製成。作品由設計到完成歷時一個多月。為配合今屆的比賽主題「融和」,她以金色、玫瑰金色及銀色的人形造型象徵不同種族、宗教和背景的人,手牽手的設計則寓意人與人之間合作及扶持,可營造更美好的未來。
 
比賽由香港貿易發展局聯同香港珠寶玉石廠商會、香港珠石玉器金銀首飾業商會、香港鑽石總會及香港珠寶製造業廠商會合辦。評審準則為作品的創意、美感、工藝及佩戴性,與及是否切合主題。得獎作品還於香港國際珠寶展中展出。
