UncommonGoods, an online retailer that specializes in handmade, eco-friendly, and uniquely designed gifts and accessories, has just launched their Jewelry Design Challenge, a call for unique, handmade jewelry including necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings. The winner will receive $500 and an UncommonGoods vendor contract.
Guest judges will provide all runners up with a consultation and critique of their work, as well as tips for marketing and growing your business. Additionally, the UncommonGoods buying team will be happy to review full portfolios in consideration for future work.
After the call for entries, the semifinalist designs chosen by the UncommonGoods buyers will appear on UncommonGoods.com where the online community will vote on their favorite pieces to move on to the final round of judging. The top five voted designs will be judged by Senior Manager of Etsy Wholesale Vanessa Bertozzi, jewelry maker Etta Kostick, and UncommonGoods Assistant Jewelry & Accessories Buyer Sharon Hitchcock. A winner will be chosen in mid-July.
Until June 30, 2013 at 11:59 EST, designers and artists are welcome to share their products at http://www.uncommongoods.com/designs/jewelry. For more information, contact Gaby Dolceamore at UncommonGoods, [email protected].
