The Prize

The internship is a brilliant opportunity to develop real world jewellery design experience from working alongside an immensely successful jewellery designer, and also win a start-up grant for your jewellery business.
Here’s what you could be winning:
• The opportunity to get your jewellery designs mass produced and sold as part of an official John Greed Jewellery rang. This in itself would be a huge accomplishment for any aspiring designer.
• A 3 week work placement with John Greed, one of the UK’s most innovative jewellery designers. Working in their Lincoln HQ, you will gain some fantastic business insights from design through to marketing and manufacturing.
• A £500 grant for your start-up jewellery business (2nd and 3rd place will also win £250 and £100 respectively).
• The chance to potentially become a full time member of staff at John Greed Jewellery

Who Can Enter?
The internship is open to anyone who would like to enter. As a guide though, we would suggest that the following are most suited: Undergraduates or masters students studying Jewellery/Fashion/Art, Aspiring Jewellery Designers and Jewellery start-ups and entrepreneurs

How To Enter

To enter, all you need to do is design a jewellery collection based on a current fashion trend. Your jewellery collection should contain approximately 7-10 base designs which then can create around 20-30 final products in an assortment of colours. Your collection should include at least one necklace, one ring, one bracelet and one set of earrings.
Your target audience is male/female between the ages of 18-35, and your retail price needs to be roughly £10-£50. Design your entry using either a computer, or alternatively use hand drawn designs on an A4 piece of paper scanned on to a computer.
