2016 LEAP Award

I am so honored to be the the the Society of Contemporary Craft’s 2016 LEAP Award winner. The LEAP Award was established in 2007 in honor of SCC Director of Exhibitions Kate Lydon’s 20-years of service. The program recognizes exceptional emerging talent in the contemporary craft field and provides opportunities for these early career artists to bring their artwork to the consumer market.

"Hailing from Somerville, MA, Jaklitsch elegantly combines traditional craftsmanship and modern design in her work. Bold in color and sleek in form, her jewelry is at once youthful and sophisticated. Stop by The Store to shop her rings, necklaces, and earrings which will debut on January 20 and be featured continuously throughout 2016."
