UncommonGoods Jewelry Design Challenge

I was recently contacted by a representative from UncommonGoods, an online retailer that offers creatively designed, high-quality merchandise.  If you haven't been to their website before, definitely click on over and check it out.  They have all sorts of fun gifts and things that you don't realize you need until you see them!

Anyway, they let me know that they're running a challenge to find a new jewelry designer!  The winner will receive $500 and a vendor contract.

So, are you in??

Here is the press release they provided to me with all the details:
