Design Challenge Mix — Amethyst
Design Challenge Mix—Amethyst
As we look 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 amethyst. Amethyst is believed to produce an uncluttered mind and ward against negative energies. Over these past few years, whether it be in person or through social media, our worlds have been sometimes very tumultuous and upsetting. As we head further into the first part of 2023, let's lay the groundwork to heal and regain our stability.
The new mix features a blend of amethyst gemstones in many shapes and sizes.
You will receive one 2" x 3" bag of Design Challenge Mix along with one Allegory Gallery Pewter Curls Toggle Clasp. We chose this toggle because it shows a number of swirls, but they are arranged in an orderly fashion. We see this as how life may have swept us up lately, but also how we can reorient and stabilize our lives.
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, February 17th, 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!
