For the past two years I have participated in a challenge called the Year of Jewelry. That is actually the reason this blog was started. Can you believe it has been 2 years already? Anyway, last year I thought it was kind of neat to see how my work progressed throughout the year in one post. I have done it again. Of course I have made many more pieces than what is pictured here, this is just what I have submitted for the YOJ challenge.
This last year has been a very big year for my family as we bought a new home, put in a yard, and built a fabulous studio. My classes have picked up and I hope that 2009 continues that trend. I thank all of you that have participated in my classes and supported me with your purchases. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you, your support and business.
I am going to push myself a bit harder this year. That is already one
of my goals. I have a very difficult time being creative and I really
need to work on it more. My work is nowhere near the level that I would
like it to be and I want to get it closer this year. I have already
challenged myself to write some tutorials and try a few new techniques.
I need to sit down and spend some good quality time with my sketch book
So here is my year in jewelry for 2008. As always, comments and critiques and suggestions are welcome and much appreciated.
