10-Day Design Challenge: Finalists announced and the voting starts

We’ve again had a great response to our 10-Day Design Challenge – Jewelry for summer, and again it’s made for a hard job choosing the final group of 20. Below you can see pictures of each open round finalist, and BELOW THE PICTURES is the voting panel. If you’re a Designer of one of the winners below, feel free to invite all your friends and family to vote for you. In our very first Design Challenge there was a very lively discussion about the choice of winners. So for all of you with strong opinions this is your chance to make them heard.

Please note you can click on the images of each product to go to their individual showroom page for more detail. Please remember, clicking on the image is NOT A VOTE for the product, you need scroll down to the bottom of the post and make your choice in the poll located there. Good luck everyone! Voting closes on Sunday August 3rd.

Great competition, excellent results.

oh yay thank you ponoko for picking me for the top 20, after a year of making things with pnoko, i feel like i am actually getting rather tricky with my makings

Awe I wish I made it in, hopefully next time!! In the meantime, I’m voting for the fan pendant, which is absolutely awesome!!! 🙂 good luck to everyone!

I am really impressed with the submissions. :o)

Love it and I want one!


Beautiful – so hard to pick. Amazingly cretive – Good Luck, All!

Thank you Ponoko for selecting some of my designs

I am amazed at the wonderful designs. Congrats to all of you who were selected as finalists!

This is so unique! I love it!

Very unique ring design, and you can let everyone know immediately what “weather” you are . . . such as: “all cloudy”=in a funk, “sun on top”=sunny disposition, etc.

Dennis Short

This is an amazing piece. Vibrant in its design and colors. Very modern and hip, something I can see being sold on QVC. This piece is well-deserving of winning!

Very proud of you girl.

Mr Robot… i had no idea

Scott & Judy

Very unique

Just curious. There is no “see results” link. Does this mean voting will be a secret until the end? Not a bad idea but it is kinda fun to see how you are doing in the standings.

Just wanted to congratulate all who were chosen as finalist and encourage those who were not. There were some really amazing designs. Good luck to eveyone.

Scott (DSCulp)

Good luck!

i love all the designs…i voted for my mexico friend scott…the butterfly is beautiful…ola johanne

Great interview!

go go Mr. Roboto, domo arigato!

(table bracelet link doesn’t work)

does the design with the most votes win? or is it decided by the judges?

John Lewis

Hi Jessica, it’s a mixture of both but the voting is very important. From our 10-Day Design Challenge page:

“Over a period of about 15 days, the Ponoko community will vote on your design.
These votes will help our judges nominate the winning design.”


John Lewis

@Hbot – thanks for noticing that. It should be working now.

Yaaaay! Got the rings in today. COuldn’t resist taking a quick photo (thank you, Photobooth) before the formal photo shoot. 😀


when does the voting end?

Tina en Jan

Deze sierlijke zwaluwen zou ik graag dragen op witte coltrui, denk ik, dagdag

What a killer Ice cream cone #13

we all scream for ice cream…….#13 the baker’s dozen

Queen Halloween

They are all great looking! I love them all and wished I could for vote for them all except for #19 that Hello Daisy by Sarah Design atrocity. That has to be the ugliest piece of design I have ever witnessed, I’ve been doing design for 20 years.

I really like that piece. The way it hangs and the engraving are nice touches. I don’t see anything wrong with it.
