During the 20ies we will hold an annual design competition for non-professionals.
They will be different from other contests in many ways. No fashion VIPs praising the new collection of a global sponsor. Only us and our many friends plus a selection of free gems set into a winning design for free and submitted to professional competitions. All for free.
Here any nobody and every somebody has a chance to make it to the top without risking the house.
Plus we will have a topic or mood coming, this year, from a poem. Next year it may be a paiting.
Here is the poetry for the 20ies:
New times as drops turn deluge
waves shatter unharmed
tsunamis roll up the land
Yellow haze without sunrise
chase all with boiling blood
blacken what cannot move
May humanity show greatness.
The best dive, go on, shove right through,
with little hands clinging to wet fingers,
frail arms strangling burnung lungs.
Behind thousand rainbows,
forces beyond imagination
observe bravery with pride.
In atmospheres and swamps
they help with a nudge or a light in the dark,
or a smack on the head.
Alas, beware, you most powerful
somewhere beyond time and space
hear the rattle of dice.
We donate a selection of, this year, twelve gems (around or under $2k each), and let you design as if money were only the usual bore but not your main concern. See below.
A jury containing five professionals (two awardwinning designers/goldsmiths, two from our side, plus one longtime experienced customer) will vote a design along rules described below.
Then, at no cost, we will, BANG:
PRODUCE the winning design!
Jewelry for free!
We only want your best, yeah, yeah, your creativity.
Later, in 2021, we will submit the piece to suitable competitions and cover the cost.
Here are the twelve gems waiting for your imagination:
