The theme for the 2020 challenge, connection, is inspired by the city of Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love. Participants will create a necklace that explores interpretations of the theme, connection. Examples of connection include love, friendship, mechanical, physical, mentor/mentee, relationship and family. The bond between parent and child, human and Earth, the sun and the sky; connection can be conceptual, or physical, technical processes. Connection to a place or a time are possibilities too.

Submissions should include a found object and as much of the kit as possible. As part of the theme, we ask that the Artist Statement be a letter directly to the person who will own and wear this necklace. Create a connection between yourself as the artist and them as the recipient of this object. What do you want them to know or experience when they wear your work?
