During our Live at 5 today, we debuted our April Design Challenge Mix—Rose Quartz!
Here's some more information:
As we dive deeper into 2023, we realize the importance of having more meaningful experiences while creating. With our Design Challenges, we realize that with current economic climates, some of our larger kits may be out of reach for some participants. So, we have created these pared-down Design Challenge Mixes in a hope to connect with more challengers and further accessibility. Our goal is to create a mix for each month with an accompanying AG Fine Pewter Component that will focus on a particular emotion or attribute that will help to inspire people in the new year.
For this Design Challenge Mix, we are spotlighting rose quartz. Rose quartz is believed to be a stone for unconditional love. This aspect of the stone can be used to help navigate difficult relationships with others by spreading joy and love and developing deeper bonds. It can also be very useful in self-care (something we all probably need to practice a bit more these days) and is believed to help strengthen your relationship with yourself and may even be able to improve circulation and heart health. Whether you crave more love in your life, or would like to heal old wounds, rose quartz is the stone for you.
The new mix features a blend of rose quartz gemstones in many shapes and sizes.
You will receive one 2" x 3" bag of Design Challenge Mix along with one Allegory Gallery Fine Pewter Rope Toggle Clasp in antique gold finish.
If you're not familiar with the Allegory Gallery Design Challenges, it's a fun and informal way to play, create, and challenge yourself with a pre-selected set of components.
To participate, challengers must order a Design Challenge Mix.
Participants will have approximately one month to work on their projects. With the mix, using as much or as little of it as one likes, participant are prompted to create a piece (or pieces) that showcases their creativity, individuality, and artistic expression. Ideally the creation will spotlight the gorgeous selection of beads included, but the sky is the limit with one can use and create!
We've asked that the Challengers keep their projects secret until the reveal date! (Of course, if you want to post teasers, please do! It'll add to the merriment and excitement!)
The project reveal date and Creative Make-Along on Zoom is set for Friday, April 21st, 2023.
Post a picture and a short description in the Allegory Gallery Design Challenge Group in the album we create for this challenge! We will spotlight some of the finished creations on the Allegory Gallery Facebook page and our Instagram account to celebrate these unique designs.
There are only a few Design Challenge Mixes available! So hurry and grab yours! They usually sell out super fast and we don't want you to miss out!
