The 2017 Halstead Design Challenge Exhibition “Memento” is now online! Many of the brooches are available for sale with proceeds benefitting the artist, SNAG and Rhino Contemporary Craft.
“Memento” asked artists to incorporate a photo into a brooch constructed primarily from materials in the Halstead challenge kit. Only 200 challenge kits were available. A juried selection from all entries was exhibited at the SNAG New Orleans Conference in May 2017. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who participated!

2nd Place: Thomas Mann, Nude with Wings
3rd Place: Kelly Jean Conroy, Elipse
Runners-up: Renee Zettle-Sterling, Xinhao Yang, Jill Tower
