|My Frida Kahlo Chainmaille Earrings: Lucite, bone, copper & Swarovski|
52 Earrings in a Year is an amazing jewelry making challenge on Flickr, designed by artist Anke Humpert. Artisans can join at any time of the year, as long as they agree to do their best to create earrings each week and share in discussions. There is an emphasis on polymer clay arts, but it is not required of your earring designs.
The Flickr group pool for the challenge is a rich, beautiful collection of over 1,300 design contributions! Occasionally, there are themes for the weekly challenges, such as the Frida Kahlo theme for week #23, my first week in the challenge.
This is an empowering, motivating jewelry challenge that will not only give you a reason to create earrings consistently, it's as lovely as it is fun. Here's Anke Humpert's information on joining the group and the challenge:
"About 52 pairs of earrings a year : In 2012 I will challenge myself: I will make more art - regularily! To stick to it, I will make a pair of earrings each week (mostly polymer clay, but not exclusivly!). So 2012 is going to be a year of 52 pairs of earrings for me....! Earrings are relatively small and who does not like to have more earrings, right?Like to join the challenge?? Just come in and show what you have made each week! Is it too late to join now ? ....of course not!!! You can jump in any time you like! You do not have to start the first week of the year! Your week one will not be the same as my week one, but that does not really matter. The important thing about this project is to be inspired and to work consitently..... so please come join us! Please only post earrings you made for the 52 earrings project....;-))"
