New Talent Contest Winner

The American Jewelry Design Council has selected Leila Tai as the winner of its prestigious 2009 new talent contest. Leila Tai is a jewelry artist, designer, and teacher who is known for her limited edition pieces and use of plique a jour enamel. From petals to butterflies, Tai’s nature-inspired collections such as “Spring” and “Wings” are one-of-a-kind with a focus on realism, movement, and flexibility.

Tai currently teaches jewelry design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Pratt Institute. The American Jewelry Design Council selects its winner based on originality, craftsmanship, innovation, marketability, and cohesiveness of design. Tai will receive a booth in the New Designer Gallery at the JA New York summer show, which will be held July 26-29.
