I participate in a forum for jewelry-makers known as the Jewelry Artisans Community. The group runs challenges at least monthly, in an effort to stretch our designing muscles. Every so often we’ll host a special challenge, like this Earring Challenge sponsored by forum member Nicole from NValentine Studios.
Nicole donated a pair of her artisan beads to each participant in the challenge; each of us had to make a pair of earrings. There was much good-natured teasing in our challenge thread, as some of us took a bit longer than others to produce our earrings.
Aren’t they gorgeous? You’ll notice they are all different. Our community is full of talented artisans of all sorts: wire artists, lampworkers (like Nicole), beadweavers, wire workers and more.
If you want to see the tomfoolery that accompanied this challenge, here is a link to the forum thread:
I started you off at page 9, because that’s when the teasing really got started.
We invite you to check out our forum at http://jewelryartisans.proboards.com/index.cgi. We’d love to have you join us!
