Yowah Design Awards

The Yowah Opal Festival Designer Jewellery Competition started in 1997 as a way to promote Opal specific to the Yowah region. Yowah Opal is known for its beautiful and unique opal yowah nuts – these have ironstone concretions which hold opal deposits in their centres. While Opal is the national Gemstone of Australia its popularity and value has spread the world over.

Over the years I have competed in the Jewellery Competition at the annual Yowah Opal Festival and below you can find some of my entries from over the years. Click on the pieces to get more details.
