Introducing the 2017 JCK Design Challenge

December 22, 2016

We’re always on the lookout for designs that stun us with their beauty, serve a purpose, solve a problem, or make us wonder why no one thought of it before. That’s why we’ve partnered with jewelry industry authority JCK on the 2017 design challenge for JCK Tucson, a curated destination for emerging artists and makers of finished jewelry and loose gemstones. JCK Tucson will be hosted from February 1-4, 2017 at the JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Tucson, AZ.

The 2017 challenge will take place on February 2. The design challenge judging panel will feature Sharon Hitchcock, Jewelry Buyer for UncommonGoods, Paula Lee, Accessories Editor for O, the Oprah Magazine, and Main Street Revolution by The top 3 winners will be awarded a cash prize, and the winner will receive a vendor contract with UncommonGoods.

If you’re a maker of designs that sparkle, this challenge is for you!* JCK Tucson is accepting entries now through January 23, 2017. Please click here to submit your design.

We will see you in Tucson on February 2. Best of luck to all who enter!

    Ooh, this sounds exciting! Do the jewelers who submit have to be in Tuscon on Feb. 2? I’m in Florida and I wouldn’t be able to make the trip at that time.
