Aberdeen-based jeweller Jamieson & Carry has launched an exciting new design competition. The ‘Inspire Challenge’ sets out to unlock the creativity of the North-east and beyond as people find themselves spending more time indoors than ever before.
Open to all ages, the challenge encourages people to design a new piece of jewellery that is unique and inspirational to them. Designs can be submitted online via the Jamieson & Carry website and one design will be selected as the winner.
The winning design will then be crafted in Jamieson & Carry’s in-house, state-of-the-art workshop once the shop on Union Street re-opens. All proceeds from the sale of the bespoke piece will then be donated to the NHS Grampian Endowment Fund.
Partner Angus Carry said: “We have been really inspired by the work of our front-line services and the people of the North-east during this challenging period. We wanted to create a fun and creative challenge for everyone to participate in whilst hopefully raising lots of money for a very deserving charity.
“There really are no limitations on the design and you certainly don’t have to be a skilled artist to enter. We are looking for a winning design that inspires our team with its creativity and passion.”
Sheena Lonchay, operational manager for NHS Grampian Endowment Fund, said: “We are very excited to be the charity partner of the ‘Inspire Challenge’. The challenge provides a welcome distraction in the current climate and an opportunity for friends and families to come together to create something special and unique.
“All donations are used to make a difference to the care of patients across our hospitals and the support we receive from the community is a real inspiration to us all. All money raised from the challenge will go towards our Covid-19 response fund.”
Entries can cover a range of different jewellery pieces including necklaces, pendants, earrings and rings. No closing date has yet been set for the challenge which is expected to run until at least the end of April. A closing date will be published on the Jamieson & Carry website later this month.
