Intro
We are pleased to present theme of 27th International Competition for the Design of Jewellery with Amber AMBERIF DESIGN AWARD 2024.
 
Symbol of Hope 
Wearing jewellery gives us hope. For one thing, jewellery strengthens our psyche. It communicates our personal courage and supports us in taking a concrete position. We wear symbols in a way that gives us hope for overcoming our inner weaknesses. With jewellery, we can also arm ourselves for the kinds of crises that come from outside and currently strongly influence and threaten our lives. 
On the other hand, jewellery offers the possibility of gaining strength from the outside. In communicating with others through the worn symbol, it strengthens us in the hope that we are not alone. Made of a warming material, such as amber, jewellery supports us like an amulet—even in the case of health weaknesses. It consolidates us despite our vulnerability and strengthens us to overcome our fears. A ray of hope radiates from the personal into a social and political environment. What does the jewellery look like that gives us hope today, strengthens us for crises and carries us through them?
