Grand Prize Gold Medal Winner

 Daryl Adams
"Ula's Gift"
Category Winner:
Necklace
Design Idea L239

With fine and sterling silver, a lapidary cut cabochon and faceted gemstones, Daryl Adams created his Grand Prize Gold Medal winning design. It may be said that the success of the design could be attributed to its construction evolving out of love. Ula’s Gift was inspired by Daryl’s wife who loved the coveted purple Mohave turquoise with mother-of-pearl in a bronze matrix. Adams said of the piece, "The iridescence of the pearl along with the earthiness of the turquoise [was] the perfect combination of heaven & the earthen sea… As a final touch, the faceted ruby, which is my wife's birthstone, completes the piece...Ula's Gift."
