Hello everyone,

 

Welcome to the latest forum challenge for the September issue (issue 53) of Make & Sell Jewellery, on sale from Friday 26th July! In addition to tips and advice from business experts plus exclusive copyright free projects, we have vintage-style ideas, advice on sourcing genuine antique jewels and much more.

 

All you have to do to enter is:

 

* Produce a jewellery make based around the main theme of vintage style, or one of the other themes or projects within the magazine. This means that you can either enter your own unique creation, or a piece based on one of the projects featured in this month's issue.

 

* Feel free to use any beads in your stash and try out different techniques too!

 

* We ask that you post a well-lit, good-quality picture in this thread, with a little explanation about how you created your entry and any details about the beads and techniques used.

 

* One entry per person please (overseas entrants welcome). Challenge closes at 5.30pm on 2nd September 2013. The winner will be announced shortly after and a fresh challenge will be opened for the new issue. And the winner will receive a lovely beady goodie bag and appear on the Your Space page within the magazine!

 

Any questions, please feel free to email me at [email protected] We look forward to seeing your entries!

 

Melissa Hyland

Deputy Editor
