Jewelry Challenge 2018

Jewelry Challenge 2018

This is a chance to show us your stuff and challenge your creativity. In the spirit of a good challenge - we are mixing it up this year!

Your piece must be made in the style of one of the following themes: Art Deco, Egyptian, or Steampunk.


The following descriptions are intended only as a basic starting point, and participants are free to research, explore, and expand upon each theme as much as they choose. Participants will have the opportunity to briefly explain how their piece fits within their chosen theme on their entry form for the judges consideration.



As in previous years, to participate, you must be a MASSC member and purchase a box. There will be 7 items in your box. Five are metal materials jewelers use. One is a vintage item and one is decorative. You MUST use a recognizable portion of a minimum of FIVE items in your box. You may add TWO ADDITIONAL MATERIALS.


The People’s Choice awards remain unchanged, and will be chosen by popular vote at the luncheon.

A Grand Prize of $500 will be awarded by a juror. Pieces will be judged on the creative use of the materials and the innovative use of the themed design requirement.

Grand Prize of $500
First prize of $300
Second prize of $200
Third prize of $100
