Deadline Extended for our Jewelry-Making Competitions!

2020ContestDeadlinesExtended

The international BeadDreams and Metal Jewelry Artistry competitions are still a go, despite the cancellation of the 2020 Bead&Button Show. We know it’s been an unusual year for everyone, so we’re extending the entry deadline one more time! The new deadline is July 13, 2020, so you now have another two weeks to take a breath, and to put your best bejeweled foot forward.

With the new deadlines, our timeline for notifications and announcements has changed. Here are the details:

July 13, 2020: Deadline to submit your entry into the BeadDreams and Metal Jewelry Artistry competitions.

July 27, 2020: Competition finalists will be contacted by this date. If you are selected as a finalist we may ask for additional photos.

July 27 through Aug. 19, 2020: All finalists will be posted on FacetJewelry.com for People’s Choice Award voting. All are welcome to vote.

Week of Aug. 24, 2020: We will announce the winners this week. Please watch BeadandButtonShow.com and our Facebook page for further details about this exciting reveal.

As announced previously, we have reduced the entry fee by $20 to mark the 20th anniversary of this competition. We are also accepting jewelry created any time in the last 20 years as long as it has not previously won a ribbon from us. Finally, to make things easier on you, we will not require finalists to ship their work to us; all judging will be based on the images you submit.
