Creative Challenge: 20 days of May

Creative Challenge: 20 days of May

Inspiration rut or overwhelm? I do think it might be a mix of both. I try not to get too stressed out about this, because stress is the killer of my creativity. So instead I am trying to go a little easy on myself as I set forth to create a new collection for 2024. 

My recent trip to Scotland has me feeling frazzled. I have all this goodness bouncing around inside of me and I'm not sure where to put it and how. I'm like Ricky Bobby with my hands. But as I know, everything will work out fine. 

I've decided that in May, each week I will be making 5 different pieces. Each week I will make one of each in whatever style I choose, necklace, earrings, ring, bracelet, studs. So far I have made it through 6 days and I feel good about what I've come up with so far! No stinkers really in my mind. This challenge feels like a great way for me to worry less about making sets and just getting some metal out to transform into something wearable. 

At the end of May I plan to select from the pieces I've made to expand them into sets to offer on my site or as one offs. I always enjoy feedback, so if you feel so inclined to tell me which pieces you like, they may end up being a staple.

I'm excited to see what I'll accomplish at the end of the month!
