The Education Department of New Taipei City Government and Dong Long Ju (DLJ) Co. Ltd. are jointly hosting a competition focusing on jewelry metalwork.
This design competition is purely for public benefit and aims to encourage students to engage in jewelry metalworking actively.
Works will be awarded in two main categories: Hand-drawing /3D Drawing and Fine Craft. Multiple awards will be given out in different evaluations. The judging committee is composed of professionals from academia and the jewelry industry invited by the organizer and the implementer.
The theme for 2022 is “Like a Butterfly Fluttering“. Details about it are published on the official website.
When the flowers bloom, the butterflies will come. Taiwan is known as the “Kingdom of Butterflies” and has recorded over 400 species of butterflies. This is primarily due to the geographical and topographical peculiarities of the island. Taiwan is located on the Tropic of Cancer line, with a subtropical climate in the north and a tropical climate in the south.
When worn on the body, those butterfly jewelry designs are like dancing butterflies gracefully flying around. Beautiful, elegant, and touching, let us explore the beauty of butterflies together!
We hope that applicants will take the theme “Like a Butterfly Fluttering” as the connotation, make appropriate use of the characteristics of gemstones, and create unique jewelry pieces which are comfortable and refined to wear with a human-oriented approach.
Taiwan is one of the world’s most important places to consume fine jewelry. It has diversified design capabilities but not the integration of jewelry metalworking techniques. Due to the high quality and stability of Taiwan’s talents and adequate technology, the quantitative and qualitative production in Taiwan of the jewelry metalwork will be in the leading position of Asia and even the world, becoming the world’s factory for metalwork design and molding in the future.
