    Student Jewellery Design Competition 2024!

    Entries are open from 15 April to 27 May 2024.

    Would you like to see your child’s artistic skills turned into a piece of incredible jewellery?

    Students will have the chance to WIN in $4,000 of prizes!

    Now in it’s eighth year, Soklich & Co. Jewellers are excited to invite both primary and secondary students in Western Australia to enter the 2024 Student Jewellery Design Competition*. This gives students the chance to design their own piece of jewellery, with a possibility of it being hand-made into an actual piece of jewellery.

    Design brief: We would like to see you design a pendant that is inspired by natural opals from Australia.

    Once the designs have been submitted and finalists selected, our Soklich & Co. Jewellery designers will work with the student designs to ensure the concepts will be practical and able to be manufactured by sketching the designs to scale. The designs will then be ready for public voting via the Website, via Facebook/Instagram and in the showroom, everyone will have the opportunity to pick their favourite design.


    Soklich & Co. Jewellers will be selecting four finalists from primary school (Pre-primary to Year 6) and four finalists from high school (Year 7 to Year 12).

    Overall, we will be giving away two Awards, with one winning student from each of the below categories;

    • People’s Choice Award.
    • Soklich & Co. Youth Design Award.


    1. The Peoples Choice Award will be selected by the general public, and the student will a receive a $1,000 Soklich & Co. Gift voucher and $1,000 cash towards their School Art Department.
    2. The Soklich & Co. Youth Design Award, will be selected by Lexie & Chris Soklich, for the most artistic design and the student will receive a $1,000 Soklich & Co. Gift voucher and $1,000 cash towards their School Art Department.

    Public voting will open on Wednesday 29 May until Wednesday 26 June, on this page, and also via Facebook/Instagram or you can vote in the showroom. Both the People’s Choice Award winner and the Soklich & Co. Youth Design Award winner will be announced on Thursday 27 June 2024.
