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 Kit.
This kit is composed of a Luxury Bead Blend, a strand of emerald chip beads, Czech glass, vintage Czech glass, vintage acrylic, vintage crystal, plated hematite, vintage sequins, miracle beads, leaded crystal, and satin rattail cord.
But wait... there's more! The pictures show a lovely mix of materials, but what isn't shown is the Mystery Component!
Each kit will come with a special, handmade component that will remain a mystery until it arrives at their doors! The Mystery Component might actually be more than just one bead or pendant! It's a surprise!
Updated: The Mystery Component will be publicly revealed on Thursday, April 15th!
Participants will have approximately one month to work on their projects. With the kit, using as much or as little of it as one likes, participant are prompted to create a piece 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 reveal date is set for Thursday, April 29th.
Post a picture and a short description in the Allegory Gallery Design Challenge group! That's where we're going to share our Design Kit creations. We will spotlight some of the finished creations on the Allegory Gallery Facebook page to celebrate these unique designs.
There are only 50 Design Kits available! So hurry and grab your kit! They usually sell out super fast and we don't want you to miss out!
Please note, all Design Challenge Kits have a delay in shipping of, at least, two weeks. We create the Mystery Component after all orders for the kits are placed. These are hand-made components, and therefore, take time (and sometimes multiple tries) to make. We thank you for your patience and can't wait to see what you all make!
