Silver Marketing International (SMI) has honored Robert Lee Morris with the prestigious “Designer of Distinction” award. Celebrating Morris’ 40 years of unsurpassed artistry in silver and his 11 years as one of QVC’s premier jewelry designers, the award was presented at QVC in West Chester, Pa. on Saturday, August 29th.
The ceremony, which was in conjunction with Morris’ QVC appearance in the Sterling Designer Gallery broadcast was led by Michael C. Barlerin, director of the SMI.
“There could not be a more appropriate recipient of SMI’s inaugural ‘Designer of Distinction’ award than Robert,” Barlerin said. “His work over the years reflects the forefront of jewelry as wearable art. While Robert has earned multiple prestigious honors and awards in the fashion, accessory and jewelry industries, his passion for silver and his pure, sensual and iconic work in this magical metal remain his hallmark.”
