Dazera Art Jewellery Competition - Applications Open

Dazera Art Jewellery Competition - Applications Open

It often seems that the focus for fine jewellery is on its dazzling gems, while the artistry of the jeweller is overlooked. Dazera is dedicated to adjusting this balance. We represent a carefully curated selection of artist-jewellers through online sales and offline exhibitions.

This year Dazera has invited jewellery specialists Katerina Perez and Rachael Taylor to judge our first ever Art Jewellery competition.

Jewellery will be judged equally on three different qualities:

  • ability to express and communicate
  • originality
  • quality of design or craftsmanship

Closing date for applications

midnight 30th June 2017

Categories

There are two categories: finished jewellery and jewellery illustrations. Artist-jewellers can submit one piece only for each category. All jewellery must be either made or intended to be made with at least some gold content beyond just plating.

Prizes

The winner of the finished jewellery category will receive £400. The winner of the jewellery illustrations category will receive £100. Katerina and Rachael will be announcing the top three in each category on their social media. The two winners will be reserved a stand each at the next Dazera exhibition 30th November - 2nd December.
