Jewelry Television (JTV), one of the world’s largest retailers of fine jewelry and gemstones, is excited to announce South Carolina native Ashley Hoffman as the winner of its groundbreaking reality competition series, JTV Rock Star Designer.
Hoffman was one of five designers from across the country who put their jewelry-making talents to the test in an eight-week, elimination-style competition. An extended season finale episode aired on the JTV network on Sept. 18, 2015.
“It’s been such a blessing to be able to participate in JTV Rock Star Designer,” Hoffman said. “The entire experience has been life-changing. I’ve gotten to learn from each of the designers in the competition and gain valuable insight from the judges. I’m excited to see what this next chapter as the first JTV Rock Star Designer will bring!”
JTV’s Rock Star Designer competition, the first reality show broadcast on a home-shopping network, challenged contestants each week in various jewelry design competitions.
After participating in challenges that tested her abilities in creativity, design and business acumen, Hoffman climbed her way to the top, outdoing four other talented jewelry designers from across the nation.
As the winner, Hoffman will receive a $5,000 cash prize, as well as an exclusive once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work alongside JTV to create a jewelry collection that will be featured nationally on the JTV network and broadcast to more than 85 million U.S. households.
“Our viewers constantly amaze us with their continuous support and enthusiasm for our initiatives, especially when we’re encouraging new designers to develop their skills,” JTV Vice President of Marketing Jill Johnson said. “JTV Rock Star Designer was a way for us to connect with our viewers in an innovative and engaging way. They’ve been a part of JTV Rock Star Designer since the beginning.”
