Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2007
Steven Zale, jewelry designer and founder of Zalemark, Inc., the Sherman Oaks-based manufacturer of several celebrity-endorsed brands, has been selected by the National Jewelry Institute to be included in the launch of their first major Designer Showcase exhibition featuring the work of individual jewelry designers in Spring 2008 at the Forbes Galleries in New York. Mr. Zale's jewelry designs landed him in the top 25 from more than 500 jewelry designers nationwide hoping to take part in this ground-breaking artistic debut.
The National Jewelry Institute (NJI) was formed in 2002 as a not-for-profit institute whose mission is to preserve research and exhibit fine jewelry from all over the world. The National Jewelry Institute has held exhibitions in New York, London and Paris. To date, the National Jewelry Institute's exhibitions have included primarily historical objects. Designer Showcase will provide exposure and much deserved recognition for today's exceptional designers.
"Steven Zale's samples of work that we have seen are extremely important in that they are marked with an individual design approach. This striking individuality is the driving force behind Designer Showcase."
Mr. Zale's jewelry design roots run deep. For more than 25 years, his passion for jewelry and crafting a quality piece with an eye for cutting edge collections have made his company, Zalemark, Inc. a leader in the jewelry industry. To be included in this exhibition at the Forbes Galleries will be especially rewarding for him.
"I consider each aspect of the piece I am creating, taking care to choose the right color and cut of stones to accent the beauty of construction as well as the woman who will ultimately end up wearing it and treasuring it for years to come. I am extremely honored to participate in this exciting event."
