The 2014 Vaccaro Family Scholarship was won by Fiona Maclean of Vancouver Community College, which was announced at the 2014 Jewellers’ Ball held on November 22 in Toronto.
Maclean was on hand to accept her prize, which also included a ticket to the ball and a flight to Toronto from Vancouver. She is currently a second-year Jewellery Design student at the college, having won the prize as a first-year.
The winning piece designed and crafted by Maclean is an intricate silver floral headband.
The scholarship was graciously donated by Beverly Hills Jewellers’ Giovanni Vaccaro as a reward for outstanding jewellery design and metalsmithing. Maclean will also be given a booth to display her own designs at the upcoming Canadian jewellery trade shows. CJ
