Fast & Fabulous Call For Submissions February/March 2019: Natural Materials
Some things never go out of style—like natural materials, such as wood, bone, clay, shell, and coral. That is why we have chosen natural materials as our Fast & Fabulous theme for February/March 2019. If this sounds like your design style, or if you are up for trying something new, check out the Fast & Fabulous call for submissions guidelines below and send us your design by August 26, 2018.
Past examples include: Simple But Elegant by Maha Rizk, Coral Geometry by Teri Bienvenue, Luau by Ruby Bayan, and Bohemian Roundabout by Melinda Barta, all featured in Jewelry Stringing, Summer 2007 (shown above).
We welcome all designs and all designers. You don’t need to be a professional jewelry artist — but if you are, that’s fine, too. Simply create a design you love that incorporates the theme. To get you started, here are some resources to help you bring your design to life.
