Creative challenges for 2012

Joy Funnell's resplendent robin pendant
This year I have been following with admiration the Bird a week challenge and the Ring a week challenge, both on flickr. These were started to challenge artists and makers to commit to a project and to do so weekly. I only saw the bird a week challenge later in the year so didn't join in (that's my excuse anyway!). But Joy Funnell has started the Bird a month challenge for 2012 which I think is much more doable!

Earrings available to buy on Lora Hart's website
I have also signed up for the Four a month challenge started by Lora Hart. This is what Lora says about the challenge 

'Welcome to the 2012 jewelry making challenge! Four A Month (FAM) is a personal challenge with no limitations on design, materials, or intent. Explore the idea of multiples by creating either a four of a kind series using the same theme or supplies, or a collection of matching pieces or 'parure'. Any style of adornment is welcome. Earrings, brooches, bracelets, necklaces, pendants, rings or even tiaras. Make wearable/sellable pieces, maquette type sketches, or purely conceptual work.'

I think this will be quite a challenge but it is open enough that you can do what you want yet structured enough to mean you post four pieces every month.

So I hope you join me on this creative journey. I'll blog about how it's going of course. 
Have a happy new year
