4 LAPIDARY JOURNAL JEWELRY ARTIST
From the Editor
WINNING A COMPETITION is exciting, prestigious,
and ego- and career-boosting, and sometimes the
prizes are pretty sweet, too. You can find all the
details about and enter Interweave’s Jewelry, Bead
and Gem Arts Awards now through July 1, 2020, at
Show us what you can do because we want to show everyone else just how
amazing, thoughtful, fun, beautiful, and moving the jewelry world can be.
If you haven’t entered or even started thinking about it yet, this gives you
enough time to develop, execute, and photograph designs, but don’t delay.
Now’s the time to pull out your sketchbooks or sketch that idea you’ve
had in mind for a while or go for something altogether new. Commit to
the piece you really want to make because we want to see what gets you
jazzed. We want your most creative and very best, just as long as it relates
to jewelry making in some way.
How open is that?
- Any medium or combination of media is acceptable.
- Divisions are organized by type of object: Jewelry, Non-Bead; Beads;
Gems; and Non-Jewelry or Non-Jewelry-Use Objects.
- Criteria are Visual Appeal and Impact; Originality; Execution; and for
Jewelry only, Wearability.
Now for those prizes...
- $1,000 to one Grand Prize Winner
- $250 each to the four Division Winners
- Honorable Mention to ten additional entrants
- One-year subscription to Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist or Beadwork
to each winner and honorable mention
- Winners may appear in Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist, Beadwork,
both, online, or all three.
Entries must be submitted online as digital images of executed designs.
Upload images to our online entry site only. Send no objects. Send no
paper. Because all entries will be judged solely as digital images, be sure to
get an excellent image of your finished work. For the purposes of this com-
petition, until you’ve done that, your work isn’t really finished.
Be sure to enter on time!
