North Carolina Jewelry Designer Invited to Academy Awards

Winterville, North Carolina (January 8, 2013) – At 8:30 a.m. eastern time Thursday, January 10, this year’s Academy Award Nominees will be announced.

Rojas-Bennett also mentioned that Ms. Connecticut and Ms. Long Island, contestants in the Miss America pageant program, would be wearing Maleku Jewelry during their respective competitions.
