52 Week Jewelry Challenge

I have lived far, far away from my family for six years and counting.  During that time I did not make jewelry.  I would get my jewelry fix whenever I visited my sweet family.

But then I would come back home and get involved with everyday life, which was fun, exciting, tiring and overall wonderful because it involved these little angels.

I was grateful to still be a part of learning about jewelry through the Hoops By Hand blog.  But then I would look at the tutorials my family made, and realized how much I missed making jewelry!

So I started to look around  to see what I could use to create my own jewelry shop.  I shopped around to different stores like Home Depot and Michaels to collect my favorite jewelry tools.  Then I realized as I looked around that I could create something unique and beautiful out of anything!  A Fork could become a mandrel to create an earring, the end of a hammer could make a nice pair of Oval hoop earrings and a pen could make a beautiful heart earring.

The next step after I collected my jewelry tools, and starting creating jewelry.  I gave myself a 52 week challenge of designing a new piece of jewelry each week for a year so I would continue making jewelry.

  I would love for you to join me on this adventure!

I realize that there will be ups and downs, but I can guarantee one thing…

It is going to be SO MUCH FUN!
