2Roses Take Honorable Mention
at the Halstead 2019 Challenge “Cycle”
The Halstead Design Challenge was developed by Brigitte Martin and Hilary Halstead Scott as a fundraiser for the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG), a non-profit professional organization for jewelers and metalsmiths working in all kinds of metals.
The project is intended to unite our community of metalsmiths and jewelers. It is open to anyone who wishes to purchase a kit. Participants range from new students and hobbyists to academics and professional jewelers. All are welcome. Submitted work represents a broad spectrum of the techniques and perspectives in our field.
2Roses is proud to announce that their piece “The Cycle of Unintended Consequences” was awarded an Honorable Mention by exhibition jurors.
2Roses SteamPunk Glasses take Grand Prize
at Metal Arts Society of Southern California
Every year the Metal Arts Society of Southern California hosts a competition and exhibition for metal artists practicing within the region of Santa Barbara to San Diego. Each artist is provided with a small box containing the same materials, plus a “wild card”. The artist is allowed to also add a wild card item or material of their own choosing. Considering that everyone starts with essentially the same materials, the creativity of the results is truly staggering.
2Roses is proud to announce that their steampunk glasses were awarded Grand Prize by exhibition jurors.
