New Taipei City International Jewelry Metalworking Competition 2022

    Taiwan is one of the world’s most important places to consume fine jewelry. It has diversified design capabilities but not the integration of jewelry metalworking techniques. Due to the high quality and stability of Taiwan’s talents and adequate technology, the quantitative and qualitative production in Taiwan of the jewelry metalwork will be in the leading position of Asia and even the world, becoming the world’s factory for metalwork design and molding in the future.

    With continuous advancement and breakthroughs of traditional metalwork, the craftsmanship of fine jewelry can be passed to the new generation to pass on. In this regard, the Education Department of New Taipei City Government and Dong Long Ju (DLJ) Co. Ltd. have jointly planned the competition focusing on jewelry metalwork. We hope that the contestants will use metalwork as the base to express their creativity and combine metal crafts with local culture.

Design theme:Like a Butterfly Fluttering

    When the flowers bloom, the butterflies will come. Taiwan is known as the “Kingdom of Butterflies” and has recorded over 400 species of butterflies. This is primarily due to the geographical and topographical peculiarities of the island. Taiwan is located on the Tropic of Cancer line, with a subtropical climate in the north and a tropical climate in the south.
    When worn on the body, those butterfly jewelry designs are like dancing butterflies gracefully flying around. Beautiful, elegant, and touching, let us explore the beauty of butterflies together!
    We hope that applicants will take the theme “Like a Butterfly Fluttering” as the connotation, make appropriate use of the characteristics of gemstones, and create unique jewelry pieces which are comfortable and refined to wear with a human-oriented approach.
