SHADOWS: The February Design Challenge


Spring is getting closer, the sun is in a new place in the sky and shadows fall on the melting snow. The groundhog peeks his head out to investigate, but the woods still lay bare and silent, waiting for renewal. A shadow, a two-dimensional silhouette: blocking the light yet casting a lovely outline. The mood is eerie and quiet as the dark and the light battle for their rightful places. What will emerge from your jewelry-making in February? 

We invite all jewelry makers to share with us a piece of jewelry in keeping with our next theme, SHADOWS.  Any time between now and February 22, 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 (February 15-23), 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.
