Competition All that Glitters: Black Diamond is a jewel in the crown of Atlantia. Let the populace and visitors from afar bring forth the glorious adornments that they have created. Jewelry, bead work, glass work, casting, gilding... if it's shines, sparkles, glitters, or glows, it's fair game. Judging will be conducted by populace vote. Documentation is encouraged, but not required.
