Jewelry Challenges!

Jewelry Challenge 11 will be announced soon.

Subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to get that announcement (and to get other cool jewelry info too)!

Come on in and join us in these friendly Jewelry Challenges – in the spirit of creativity, encouragement, and appreciation of each other’s artistry…

…but definitely NOT competition. JMJ Jewelry Challenges are never contests.

Guidelines for
the Jewelry Challenges

  • These are fun, theme-based design Challenges to spark our creativity and inspire us to try new things in jewelry making.
  • There are no judges and no prizes.
  • Each Challenge lasts approximately 2 weeks, from the time it’s announced until the time it closes.
  • The opening and closing of each Challenge will be announced in Rena’s Jewelry Making Journal Newsletter.
  • All entries must be “family friendly” and non-offensive.
  • Please enter up to 3 pieces for each Jewelry Challenge, as long as your entries relate to the theme of that Challenge.
  • Each entry can include up to 4 photos – so I encourage you shoot enough photos to share a few shots of your entry.
  • Have fun, and be sure to leave comments for each other!
