Any which way you want to look at the topic of CYCLE, explore the 2019 Halstead Design Challenge theme by playing with your ideas on continuity, loops or lifecycles! 2019 is a special year for SNAG as the organization celebrates its 50th anniversary. Such occasions are a time for reflection on the past and the future. Show us your interpretations of repetition or progression, fabrication techniques and creative use of a found object – all brought to life as a neckpiece or pendant!
