Best Designer and Best Jeweler 2012
Philippe Léopold-Metzger, CEO of the luxury watchmaker Piaget, presented the Best Designer and Best Jeweler Award at a ceremony held at the Piaget Time Gallery in Geneva. For the seventh consecutive year, both prizes were awarded to students from the Centre de Formation Professionnelle des Arts Appliqués (CFPAA) and the DUAL training program of the Association Romande des Métiers de la Bijouterie.
Since 2005, the watchmaker and jeweler Piaget has been supporting the Geneva-based training center in awarding the best student in the section. The award is designed for 4th year IB students and includes two categories:
- The Best Designer Award: for an aesthetic design concept based on a given theme.
The Best Designer Award was given to Fanny Salvan, a 20 year old of French nationality.
- The Best Jeweler Award, for the creation of an object based on a drawing.
The Best Jeweler Award was given to Nathalie Tuller, a 20 year old from Bern, Switzerland.
The prize giving ceremony was attended by Guy Mérat, Director of the Centre de Formation Professionnelle des Arts Appliqués (CFPAA), Pierre-Marie Max, Dean of CFPAA and Cédric Berruex, Piaget’s High Jewelry Director.
Watchmaker and Jeweler Piaget also offered the jewelry award winner a 6-month internship in its High Jewelry workshop.
