Congratulations to BA Jewellery Design student Kota Okuda, who has been announced as the winner of the 2014 Swarovski Scholarship. The award allows the recipient to realise their design visions through financial support throughout the final year of their BA course.
Kota’s work was selected after the judges were attracted to his work which challenges not only the idea of jewelry design, but also the juxtaposition of British and American ethnic culture
