The March 2017 Facet Design Challenge: CELTIC


The decorative elements of Celtic design are derived from ancient tradition: complex ornamental patterns, religious iconography, and motifs from nature. Simple knots, endlessly twisting wire, spirals or triskelions bursting with mystical energy: What will you create for March?

The Facet staff invites all jewelry makers to share with us a piece of jewelry in keeping with our next theme, CELTIC.  Any time between now and March 29, 2017, 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 OUR FAVORITE PIECES will be announced.

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. You can also see all the lovely pieces in one place in our newly redesigned Design Challenge page!

NEW FEATURE: Vote for your favorite pieces! During the last week of each monthly Design Challenge (March 14-30), you can help us choose our new Reader's Choice Award, so be sure to come back and check out all the entries. We can’t wait to have you share your work with the Facet community, and gain inspiration from the work of your fellow jewelers.
