Poetry In Motion, Spring, Rejuvenation. 
The contrast of Spring green against winter brown. 
The unfolding of a bud, the gradual opening of a flower, 
the capturing of sunlight and moisture and nourishment. 
Securing the essense in quartz and crystal and glass. 
Creating pathways and fences and sign-posts with wire and metal and clay. 
Nothing beats Spring for inspiration and jewelry.

40 artists will be given the assignment to carve a wonderful object from a similar block of jade.

On this website, you can register to vote for the winner.  Voting begins 10/15 and concludes 10/30 of this year.


Also on this website, you can view profiles about each artist, and view some of their works.    I’ve included images of some of their pieces here.
