and the WINNERS are :


Giovanni Sicuro, Italy1st Prize Series of rings:  „Bianchi Untitled 1-3“, Agate, gold"Giovanni Sicuro, Italy 1st Prize Series of rings:  „Bianchi Untitled 1-3“, Agate, gold
« The effect of the rings fascinated the Jury; at first glance they are classic pieces of jewellery but the material used irritates the observer, awaking curiosity. The simple, white agate does not look like stone but rather like ivory or plastic. Only when touched is the cool, hardness of stone revealed and on closer inspection the concept of the pieces is exposed. A traditional ring is reversed here; the entire body of the ring is cut from a layer of white agate concealing the gold band. The stone is not reduced to being a decorative accessory but forms the defining element, which through exceptional craftsmanship replicates ‘traditional’ ring stones. This subtle play with the expectations of traditional ring design and with the notion of agate as a stone which is valued for its pattern or colour, won over the Jury unanimously. »
Levani Jishkariani, Georgia 2nd Prize Object: Wood, agate  Levani Jishkariani, Georgia 2nd Prize Object: Wood, agate 
« This object, made from wood and agate sticks, impressed the jury with its archaic expression. Its effect is earthy, as if it came from the distant past but at the same time it is very contemporary. The piece works on completely different levels, awakens associations and memories, from a piece of agricultural equipment to an instrument of torture, depending on the viewer’s experiences. This multidimensionality earned it second place from the jury.« 
Typhaine Le  Monnier, France3rd PrizeNecklace: Agate, elastic band Typhaine Le  Monnier, France 3rd Prize Necklace: Agate, elastic band
« The unusual combination of materials in this necklace delighted the jury. The elastic band is reminiscent of a brassiere strap; a very feminine element, which however remains mostly unseen, hidden. Through its use in a classic neck adornment, the hidden is placed centre-stage, drawing the observer’s gaze upon itself. The soft material enters into a fascinating combination with the hard, cold stone exacerbated by the positioning of the supple band, designed for proximity to the body, on the outside and the distal stone next to the body. Through the choice of materials, the colour and the form of the agate the piece relates strongly to the body. The jury particularly highlighted the haptic quality of the jewellery; when worn the cool weight of the agate is felt on the neck but the stone nevertheless fits itself to the body and is very wearable. Beyond its function as a necklace, the jury explicitly commended the effect of the piece as an object »
