Theme for the August Design Challenge: HARMONY

Harmony 800 x 419

It’s time for the August Facet Design Challenge! We invite our readers and makers to create or share a work of jewelry in keeping with our August 2016 theme, HARMONY.

It’s always a delight when a project turns out in a consistent, unified way. Our beads and components and cord and metalwork suddenly come together in a HARMONIOUS arrangement! It is pleasing to the eye in the way that music is pleasing to the ear. And yet there is structure, accord – an agreement in the way that the various elements blend together. That’s what we are looking for in this month’s Challenge.

How will you interpret show us the HARMONY in your jewelry-making during August? We invite all beaders, metalsmiths, clay artists and other makers to interpret this theme in their own way and produce a work as creative as it is beautiful.

Any time between now and Aug. 24, submit a photo of your work and a brief description of how your piece fits the theme. At the conclusion of the contest, the Facet editorial staff will vote, and THREE WINNERS will be awarded.  There will be three categories of winners: Stitching; Metal, Wire, Clays & Resin; and Stringing, Fiber & Cord. The winners will be announced in early September.

We will share photos of the winning pieces on our social media sites and in our newsletter, so be sure to include links to your personal website, Etsy shop, Instagram or anywhere else that our readers can view more of your work. If you’d like to participate in a Five Question Spotlight about your work and your inspiration, we’d love to run it on Facet!

You may submit two images for each monthly contest. You can find an entry form, as well as other rules for the Facet Design Challenge on our contest site.  

We can’t wait to have you share your work with the Facet community, and gain inspiration from the work of your fellow jewelers. You can view all of the submissions to the Design Challenge here.
