Wild Jungle Challenge

It's been awhile since our last design kit challenge!  After doing challenges for over nine years, almost 60 challenges, and sending out thousands of kits around the world... we thought that we were going to close this chapter on offerings at Allegory Gallery. But then I had a wonderfully wild dream and I knew we weren't done just yet.  

Let's go on a little adventure... sweat trickles down your face.  Your muscles ache as exhaustion weighs heavily.  You've been making your way to the heart of the jungle, pulling yourself over tangles of roots and through thick foliage.  It's a humid place with steam rising off the leaves and water droplets sparkling like glass beads.  Imagine trekking through this extreme landscape, surrounded by a thousand shades of green and tropical wildlife.  It's a challenging place, but it's also rewarding with plants and animals that seem dreamed up and completely imaginary.  This is a wild place.   Our design kit is loosely inspired by this expedition into the tropical unknown. Thus the Wild Jungle Challenge was born!  The kit combines a mix of lush greens and woody browns, with pops of cream.

So... here's the deal:  Participants of the challenge will purchase a kit.  The kit is made up of a strand of prehnite, vintage plastic, ceramic, vintage glass, aventurine, vintage seed beads, waxed linen, coconut, and a luxury bead blend!  The kit will also include a mystery component!  No one knows what it is until it arrives at your door.  Challengers will have a few weeks to make something with the kit.  They can use as much or as little of the kit as they like and supplement the kit with beads from their own stash if they so desire.

And then... on Thursday, July 26th, 2018 we'll share all the creations in our Facebook group.  CLICK HERE to visit our Facebook group just for our design challenges.

Now, here's the fine print:  There are only 20 Design Kits available!  Once we receive your order, we will process your kit and send it out within ten business days.  Usually it's faster than that, but we like to make sure that there is plenty of time to make the kits perfect.  HURRY!  Supplies are limited and are on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis!  (Sorry, no exceptions!)

I also wanted to mention that all the Design Kits will be shipped with Priority mail.  This can take anywhere from one business day to ten.  For international orders, it may take longer!  If you know it takes a long time to reach your destination (from Southwestern Pennsylvania) please place your orders early! I will do my best to get your kit out as early as possible, but unfortunately I can't be held responsible if it arrives late due to the postal service.

All sales of the Design Kits are final and there are no returns or exchanges.
