STEP 2: Submit your design and it'll go to the vote (see downloadable template for submission options)
STEP 3: When submissions close you get to vote on your favourite designs
STEP 4: Celebrate the winner (it could be YOU)

We were SO impressed with the winning design, the Waterfall Necklace from Vicki Meehan (read more here) that we ended up designing the whole Cascade Collection around it. Vicki chose the incredible Freedom Hub for proceeds of the sale of the necklace to go towards, and has now opened our eyes to a truly wonderful organisation. Find out more about the Freedom Hub here.
