The $3,000 award is open to emerging designers anywhere in the world who have completed a design training or study program in South Australia in the last five years or who are currently completing one.

The annual competition asks designers to compliment the premier food and wine found in South Australia and previous winners have concentrated on serving bowls and utensils.

Giuliani instead chose to use her skills in jewellery design to craft the pins for her Dressed to Digest series.

Giuliani completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design (Jewellery Major) at Adelaide College of the Arts as well as a three-year mentorship with Adelaide-based jewellers Jane Bowden and Roman Kielczewski.  She is currently completing JamFactory’s Associate program in the Metal Design Studio.

“Angela’s work has beauty and whimsy, but what really made it stand out was that element of unexpected surprise: it really triggers the imagination.” said judge and designer Alexander Lotersztain.

The other judges were Andrew Wallace from the University of South Australia, Brian Parkes the CEO of the JamFactory, and Leanne Amodeo from The Adelaide Review magazine – the host of the awards..

The pins will be exhibited along with the other finalists at the JamFactory until 29 November.
