Fancy making an exhibition of yourself?

I came across a couple of opportunities for jewellery designers this week that I thought may well be worth sharing with you.

The first is an upcoming online exhibition of jewellery primarily constructed from non-precious metals and other media, to be hosted by Ganoksin . Anyone can enter the exhibition whatever their level but jewellery must be wearable not purely 'artistic'. All entries will be accepted with appropriately qualifying images and there is also an opportunity to link to your selling site.

I'm still thinking about what to enter - maybe one of these:
Handmade lampwork beads by Kaz Baildon
Bronzclay pendant made by me
Coiled copper bracelet
Or maybe I'll design something new..?

The closing date for entries (up to 3) is 31 May 2011 and further details can be found here.

Another opportunity for UK designers is the 'Liberty Open Call" on 20 August 2011, which aims to find new design talent for the store. Designers have 3 minutes to pitch their designs to an expert panel and will be told there and then whether they have been successful. Top calibre designers could win support from Liberty and get advice on nurturing their designs and their business.

Fancy having a go at this 'softly softly' style Dragons Den to see if you could become the next big thing...then more information is available here.

If you do decide to have a go at either of these, then I wish you the very best of luck and, if you do become the 'next big thing', please remember me in your acceptance speech!

Have a wonderful weekend all!
