Battle of the Rings is on!

Battle of the Rings is on!

Vote for your favorites bee ring was selected for Team Shanks.

Battle of the Rings, otherwise known as the Ring Smackdown, is a head-to-head, tournament style, single-elimination juried competition and virtual event. First conceived in the spring of 2020, this event encourages creativity, comeradery among artists and a passion for the art of jewelry, most especially the ring. This year our Jurors, Sharon Massey and James Thurman, juried 64 rings from a pool of 138 submissions from 12 countries. The rings will compete in daily matches on Instagram, May 1-31. All 64 rings plus 1 alternate are available for purchase through June, a wonderful opportunity for both collectors and participating artists.

The guidelines for this competition are simple. The rings must be of an original design, fit within a certain size restriction, with a maximum purchase price of $1,200.  These exceptional rings are gold, plastic and everything in between. Some are designed for daily wear; others are best suited for your art collection. Magnificently beautiful, complexly constructed or irresistibly precious, no two are even remotely alike.
