A little history first. Last year, I followed a very creative metalsmith named Tomi. And, I learned recently that's pronounced like "tommy" not "toe mee". So, I have had to change her name in my mind, since for most of the year I had thought it would be "toe mee". Anyway.... :) She belonged to a flickr group called Ring A Day. The challenge for the participants was to create a ring a day. It didn't have to be made of metal, it could be made of anything. From a full on fabricated silver ring, to a ring of paper. Just so that you made a ring a day.
Tomi made it to the end. One of the few from what I understand. I joined the flickr group last year so I could check out all the rings, but never really got the chance to follow anyone but Tomi since I follow her blog. And I must say, I really enjoyed seeing her posts every day, and my very favorites of her work are the shadow rings that she does. They are super cool....
So, Tomi announced some time in December that she was starting a Ring A Week group. I started toying with the idea right away. I think I could handle a ring a week. I really would like to use this project to challenge myself to try some new things. I already have a list going!
My very first ring completed in the New Year was "Tranquillity".
My first RAW!! I am excited to be a part of this group, getting to know other jewelry artists. It's going to be a lot of fun and I invite you to follow me on my journey!
