Eligibility Guidelines

Seeking handcrafted art jewelry and accessories from a wide range of mediums. Pieces with bold colors, intricate cuts and/or complex patterns in aluminum, gold, sterling silver, bone, wood, felt, fiber, textile, and repurposed material are encouraged, no ivory please. The exhibition seeks to highlight wearable statement pieces, and artists that push boundaries of jewelry, beauty and “value.”  These are guidelines, not requirements. Works of all kinds are encouraged – do not be dissuaded if your work doesn’t fit perfectly into one category!

Image Submission Details

Prepare your images as .JPG files, 1500 pixels maximum on the longest side, and make sure they are under 3MB in size.
