FIRST PLACE - NON-HOLIDAY WINDOW DISPLAY: ACCESSORIES/BEAUTY/SHOES PRESENTATION
Shreve, Crump & Low, Boston
Visual merchandiser Lucy-Ann Bouwman's love for the beach inspired her creation of "Seashells" for jeweler Shreve, Crump & Low's summer 2005 window display.
In one window, a light pink and peach shell-encrusted rowboat is docked below a set of diamond and pearl sea star earrings and brooch, which hang like bait from leaded fish hooks. Layers of seashells also framed the windows.
Judges commented on how easily their eyes were drawn to the beautiful and delicate jewelry inside each window. Bouwman says the key is in the lighting.
She also tries to show how fashion relates to jewelry. "I don't want people to be afraid to wear these pieces of jewelry," she says.
