Well it is almost Week 4 of the Art Jewelry Element Earring Challenge. I've noticed a couple of things about me that are different from my other colleagues. First of all, I'm one of the few artists not selling my work. I've always been afraid that making this into a Business would mean that I'm working again. Even though my retirement has been challenging so far; I'm so happy each day when I get up and know my schedule is my own. The other thing I've noticed is my photo's are horrible, I guess that means I need to work harder on my digital photography skills (sounds like a good goal for 2013). With each week (thus far) I've tried to throw something new into the mix: Week one was purely about the lampwork, Week two was to show you can make earrings using just about any technique, mine happened to be crochet. Week three, cotton cording instead of metal and now Week four is all about the metal, bronze clay.
In future weeks, I will be exploring resin, ceramics and chain maile. I can't wait to start working on Week 5!
Later - Dee
