Harriton High School junior Zoe Wright Riley has been named a finalist in this year's Saul Bell Design Awards for her exemplary entry in the "Emerging Jewelry Artist - 18 Years of Age or Younger" category.
After two rounds of intensive judging, Zoe's piece - a necklace entitled The Woods of Imperfect Beauty - was one of only five out of hundreds of entries from throughout the world selected as a finalist by a distinguished panel of professional metal artists. Artists who advance to the finals in the Saul Bell Design Awards "epitomize the very best of the jewelry industry in creativity, design and fabrication."
This impressive honor places Zoe amongst the most talented young metal artists in the world. Her work will be featured by Rio Grande, a prominent metal arts supplier, across its social media and print platforms for the next year.
