One of my many goals this year is to branch out more into the wonderful community of other jewelry designers, and to not only meet people that have similar interests to myself, but to also grow as a designer. I have joined two wonderful groups on Face book. The first is The Bead Soup Cafe https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/BeadSoupCafe/ created by the wonderful Lori Anderson http://www.prettythingsblog.com the second group is Creative Bead Chat group https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/323057074410586/. I am not exactly sure who created this wonderful group but I do love being a part of both of them.
The other thing thing that I am doing this year is to push myself into participating in new challenges. The next one that I am doing is the One Color Crayon Challenge. http://thestudiosublime.com/2012/04/01/theonecolorcrayon/#comment-613 What we have to do is pick one of eight colors and work with that color and its various hues, creating a monochromatic design. We will be hopping on Saturday May 5th, 2012. Be sure to come back and see my design.
