Hi Orchid. As you know, @RioGrande is a longtime Orchid/Ganoksin supporter. We've teamed up to host a little contest, and Rio has donated $1,000 in prize money.
Ten $100 Rio gift cards to be given out as prizes.
Here's what you need to do to participate, it's easy:
Post up 3-5 pictures of your bench or workspace in our "Bench Exchange" category here on Orchid.
Describe your setup. Why it works for you, why you set it up the way you did, and what you might like to change about it. Ideally in at least a few sentences or more so your fellow jewelers can learn from your experience.
Mention at least ONE thing you've purchased from Rio Grande that has helped you do your work more effectively or efficiently, and link to it on their website. Even better if you can show folks where it is in the picture.
Be sure you have a profile picture on Orchid - you must have a profile picture to be eligible. People like to see who you are when they read your replies
We will be running the contest until November 1. Anyone who participates will be entered into the random drawing for the gift card. Gold and Platinum members will be entered twice if they participate. We will select ten people randomly, you can only win one gift card.
Any questions, post them here! We can't wait to see your benches and workspaces!
