Design Challenge Mix — Amazonite
Design Challenge Mix—Amazonite
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 amazonite. Amazonite is believed to be a stone for the heart chakra to help release toxic emotions, but it is also associated with the throat chakra which will help to support communication and expression. As we are in the midst of winter here in Pennsylvania, we know that dark days and cold temperatures can cause us to close up and hibernate from the world, but Spring is around the corner! So, we figured amazonite would be a great stone to lay the groundwork for reaching out. Using this stone of hope and manifestation let's use its fluid energy of water to assist us in going with the flow to help navigate to more open and expressive times!
The new mix features a blend of amazonite gemstones in many shapes and sizes.
You will receive one 2" x 3" bag of Design Challenge Mix along with one Allegory Gallery Pewter Heart Toggle Clasp in antique silver finish. We chose this toggle to tie into the idea of amazonite energizing the heart chakra to help us be more open and optimistic!
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, March 24th, 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!
