Saint Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 11, 2009
David Kodner Personal Jewelers (http://www.davidkodner.com) is calling on all aspiring designers to enter the first-ever David Kodner Design Contest. Participants will have the chance to design a piece of jewelry around a 5.20 carat moonstone, a beautiful focal point from which creativity may spring.
"There are many designers around the country with great talent and potential, and we are excited to see what participants come up with," said David Kodner. "Our business philosophy has always been to give back to the community that supports us so generously, and we look forward to acknowledging budding talent and helping a new designer reach his or her full potential."
To enter the contest, designers must have an active Facebook account (or must create one for the contest--sign up is free at Facebook.com) and become a fan of "David Kodner Personal Jewelers". On the fan page, participants may find a photo album dedicated exclusively to the moonstone centerpiece for the design contest, as well as official contest information and rules.
Submissions for the David Kodner Design Contest will be accepted from November 1, 2009 through November 20, 2009. Participants may design any type of jewelry--a necklace, bracelet, pendant, or something entirely different-- as long as it includes the moonstone jewel and is an original design. Submissions may be hand-sketched or computer-generated, but they should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to the David Kodner Personal Jewelers physical address at 7710 Carondelet Ave. Suite 102, Clayton, Missouri 63105 on or before Friday, November 20, 2009. All mailed entries must be received in office by November 20, 2009. In addition to the design, submissions should also include: Designer name, contact information (email, mailing address, phone), type of jewelry designed, and a short description of the inspiration for the piece.
On November 26, 2009 (Thanksgiving Day), David Kodner Personal Jewelers will announce the top five designs on their Facebook fan page. The top five designs will be chosen by the David Kodner staff according to: creativity, wear-ability, and feasibility to produce. After the top designs are announced, Facebook fans can begin voting for their favorite, either by "liking" a submission or by entering a positive comment. The voting period will last two weeks, ending at 11:59pm on December 9, 2009. The design with the most votes will be announced as the winner on December 10, 2009.
The winner of the David Kodner Design Contest will see his or her design become an actual piece of jewelry, crafted by David Kodner Personal Jewelers. The finished piece will be on display at David Kodner Personal Jewelers in Clayton, Missouri, and a photo will be posted on the Facebook fan page. The winner will also receive a $500 cash prize.
