We wanted to tell you about a great new line we've recently debuted, Allegory Gallery Design Mixes.
As we look ahead to 2023 coming up in just a few short weeks, 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 our first Design Challenge Mix, we are spotlighting pearls. Pearls symbolize wisdom gained through experience. Over the last few years, life has thrown us many curveballs, but we feel that we've learned from these and grown through overcoming many obstacles. Pearls seemed perfect, symbolically, to launch these mixes.
The new mix features a blend of both vintage and contemporary beads. It includes many different kinds of freshwater pearls, vintage glass and plastic pearls, and shell pearls.

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, January 20th, 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!
