Roxanne Moznabi was named as the victor for her contemporary trilogy ring design in 18 carat yellow and red gold. Weston Beamor MD Andrew Morton remarked: \u201cThis was an outstanding year and we had difficult decisions to make. In past years any one of the three finalists could have won, however Roxanne\u2019s design really captured all our imaginations.\u201d\r\nNow in its eleventh year, the competition is run in conjunction with the School of Jewellery at Birmingham City University (BCU) to give students a chance to showcase their design abilities.\r\nMoznabi was inspired by the three meaning of the Zoroastrianism religion \u2013 good thoughts, good words and good deeds. Her design has a luxurious quality and holds some of the Persian influence from the route of her initial design exploration.\r\nClaudia Noble and Joanna Gordon came second and third respectively for their pieces. All three finalists are in their second year of study in an HND Jewellery and Silversmithing Course and will receive a week of work experience at Weston Beamor.\r\nMoznabi, who also received \u00a3500, has already completed a three-and-a-half-year jewellery apprenticeship in her hometown, Chichester. She said of her win: \u201cWhen I was working I did a lot of repair work and commissions but I suddenly realised I really wanted to make my own designs and if all goes well I would like to have my own business. Hopefully winning this competition will help me realise my ambition.\u201d\r\nPrototypes of all three shortlisted designs were produced by Weston Beamor and were on display on the company\u2019s stand at the Jewellery Show.\r\nImage: (L-R) WB the Creative Jewellery Group chairman Patrick Fuller; Joanna Gordon; Roxanne Moznabi; Claudia Noble; Andrew Morton; and Gaynor Andrews of the School of Jewellery.
