Show off your jewelry making tips, tricks, and designs in this year’s Jewelry Contest brought to you in part by Rio Grande. String it, wrap it, carve it, solder it or whatever else pops into your head! There are so many techniques you can use for making jewelry and we want to see them all.

Winners will be taking home a jeweler's workbench, soldering kit, benchtop basics kit, Rio Grande gift cards, and lots more tools to enable your making. Any and all jewelry projects are eligible, so start making and don’t be afraid to try something new!

To get the creative juices flowing, check out the Jewelry Class! Free to all Instructables members.

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Mar 6, 2017 and May 1, 2017 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Jewelry Contest 2017. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.
